February 2023 Band Update

Updated: Feb 3, 2023

As a booster board member, I used to think that after marching season things would slow down. 😂 #ThatIsALie This time of year is just as busy as any - Jazz Band in full swing, Marching Band reveal and sign ups, Solo & Ensemble, Indoor Percussion Contests, feeding the Pep Band and Winter Guard taking the stage for the first time this season! Here is snapshot of this week in band!

Jazz Band

Jazz Band is in Full Swing!! See what I did there? LOL. The Jazz program has spent numerous hours working to perfect their skills and are now ready to show it off.


Jazz 1 and Jazz 2 met with Beloit High School from Wisconsin. They had a jam session and then hung out and bowled the night away. What an experience for all involved.


Jazz 1 competed at the Purdue Jazz Festival. Although they did not place they had an amazing performance and came home with great feed back on what they need to continue to work on. Jazz one has been working on recordings to submit to Essentially Ellington.

Next up ALL Jazz bands are heading to Pendleton Jazz Fest: February 10th (Jazz 4, 5, 6 performs) and February 11th (Jazz 1, 2, 3 performs). Want to listen to some great music? We hope to see you there!!
