The Jazz Combo is open to all 7th and 8th grade students who play any instrument and to 6th grade students who have played their instrument for at least one year. Jazz Combo meets Thursday mornings from 7:05-7:50am. Performances are held in the Chautauqua as well as at the Mall of America. Students are expected to attend each session and spend additional time outside school practicing their pieces.
Students receive a handbook at the beginning of band, including a form for Jazz Combo. Auditions occur during the first few weeks of September.
