Jazz Club was founded in the 2017-2018 school year by Tessa Witkofsky as part of a Legacy Genius Project. Last year, it was taken over by Tass Tassinari, and this year Dharma Dorazio and EJ have taken on a joint leadership role.
The ensemble rehearses twice a week after school (and before school). Due to the group's instrumentation, they mostly play as a combo, learning charts out of the Real Book and improvisation techniques. As instrumentation grows, we hope to form a full size Big Band.
If you are interested in joining, please speak to Ms. Quiñones. We are looking for students who play the following instruments: Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, Upright Bass, Piano, Guitar, Drumset, Auxiliary Percussion. A basic knowledge of music theory and notation is recommended for this group. Check us out at CLUB RUSH!
