Jazz Ensemble

The Jazz Ensemble is an extracurricular, auditioned group comprised of students in grades 9- 12 that performs at school and community events throughout the winter and spring. Students must be enrolled in Concert Band or Symphonic Winds to be eligible for the jazz ensemble. The only exception is for instruments that are not offered in the band class (bass, guitar, and piano). For these instruments, preference for placement in the group is given to students enrolled in one of the band classes.

The West Essex Band Boosters makes it possible for our Jazz musicians to enjoy enriching experiences. Some of the ways WEBB does this include:
  • Visits to Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City, where our students observe, interact and perform with world-renowned professional jazz musicians,.
  • Senior Scholarships,
  • Concert Hospitality and Refreshments, after all High School Jazz Performances
