Jazz Band is an after-school 1-credit academic class and ensemble open to members of FHS Bands, Chorus, and Orchestra.  The advanced ensemble, “Big Band,” rehearses once a week from mid-November to mid-May. Our jazz ensemble plays repertoire drawn from a variety of musical genres, including bop, swing, Latin, and funk. Fairfax Jazz travels to regional competitions during the spring, performs on the department’s spring trip, and in the local community. Parents of the Jazz Ensemble students assist by transporting the band and their gear to competitions and other performances. A beginning ensemble, “Jazz 2,” also practices weekly from mid-November to mid-May and performs in the spring showcase and other concerts late in the year. (Audition Required)
