Jazz Band

The Jazz Band is a traditional jazz big band comprised of saxophones, trumpets, trombones, and a rhythm section (piano, guitar, bass guitar, drums, and auxiliary percussion). As with all other bands at Anderson, membership is by audition only and is open to anyone who is currently enrolled in the band program. Non-band members may audition for rhythm section instruments (piano, bass, or guitar) and may be selected if a suitable band student is not available. The group meets on Tuesdays (4:45 to 6) and Thursdays (7:15 am to 8:45) from the end of marching band until their concert in May. In 2017-18 the Jazz Band received outstanding performance awards at both the Temple Jazz Festival and the Georgetown Jazz Festival.
