This group is Kamiakin’s most mobile and busy ensemble with many bookings each year at regular concerts, community events, fundraisers and school functions. The main focus throughout the school year will be on the famous “big band” styles of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, and other notable big bands. Kamiakin’s Jazz Ensemble also breaks into smaller groups to study “combo” and “Dixieland” styles. Opportunities for improvisation abound in all types of jazz offered as Kamiakin’s jazz musicians maintain a tradition of excellence. Students interested in auditioning for and performing with our award-winning Jazz Ensemble are expected to have attained a reasonable amount of skill and technique on their instrument in order to perform selections acceptably.
