Band: jazz band to perform at Eighth Grade Open House


It’s time to dust off the flutes and grease the trumpets because the Jazz Band concert season is about to begin.

The Jazz Band has been working on music compositions that fall into the genres of blues and rock. Their goal for the upcoming concert is to primarily focus on pop based music, according to Band Director Nathan Heath.

“This year we have the highest participation in Jazz Band and Jazz Cats in many years. Students are proving to do an excellent job and playing very advanced pieces,” Mr. Heath said.

To start off the season, the Jazz Band will be playing at  8th Grade Open House on November 13. The band is hoping to intrigue students into wanting to join Jazz Band when they are in high school. Besides performing at the open house, the first real concert will be held on December 10.

One new feature in the concert is junior Kristin Osinski, who will be singing a solo in the song “Over the Rainbow.” The band is excited and happy to have her be a part of the show. Meanwhile, the band is also excited to play the new advanced pieces of music they have learned, according to Mr. Heath.

“I’m excited for the upcoming Jazz Band concerts to see how we sound as a group,” junior Matt Phillips said.
