Jazz Club was founded in the 2017-2018 school year by Tessa Witkofsky as part of a Legacy Genius Project.
Since its first year, the group has continued to be run by its students, with other student leaders including: Gabe Tassinari, Dharma Dorazio, EJ Hardy, Ethan Fairclough, and Andrew Roelen.
This club rehearses twice a week before school and depending upon the number of students involved, may split into multiple combos. Together, students explore the history and theory of the jazz tradition. They study the works of the Great American Songbook, as well as works from various other jazz artists.
Anyone can participate, all instruments and skill levels welcome. A basic working knowledge of music theory and notation is definitely helpful for this group. To learn more about joining Jazz Club for the 24-25 school year, reach out to next year's club president, Sophie Martin.
