The delightful Improv of Jazz music….
Encore’s Jazz Band program is one of the most sought after bands to be a part of within the program. This is for advanced musicians that want to hone in on the skill of Improv and be able to master building catchy beats that are popular for the untrained ear. Jazz musicians have the opportunity to play at competitive festivals each school year as well as at Carnaval, Festival, rallies, and other fun events. The wild world of jazz music is a great way for people to groove together.
For members of Encore’s Jazz Ensemble, they will be required to purchase a black tuxedo, white tuxedo shirt, and black bow tie. They often perform wearing a regular red tie and no tuxedo jacket. Ladies wear the tuxedo or an all black dress that is the uniform for the band department in general.
