Jazz Ensemble

Director: Mr. Brian Frazier

Jazz Ensemble provides the opportunity for the study of dance band, jazz, and popular music. The stylistic elements of performance as well as some of the important artists and music of the jazz and popular field will be studied. Students participating in this ensemble will have several opportunities to perform in the school and outside in the community, including Westminster’s Flower and Jazz Festival. Each year the Jazz Program develops based upon student interest. At times it is offered as a curricular ensemble (class) and at times it is offered as an extra-curricular ensemble. Some years we have multiple jazz groups focusing on different levels and styles of jazz music.
