The Downtown Jazz Band is for the intermediate jazz musician who wants to perform in a big band. This band gives members the opportunity to play jazz, Latin and R&B tunes in a fun and supportive atmosphere. Weekly rehearsals prepare the band for performance while continuing to develop members’ technique and musicality with some opportunity to improvise as well, all while building a repertoire of standards in the genre. If this sounds good to you, “swing” on by Merivale High School and see what all the fuss is about!
