Jazz News for Spring 2018 Season

Wake the Kids, call the neighbors because it’s JAZZ BAND TIME!

Yes, the FHS Jazz Bands are in full swing. This year we have had a record number of students wanting to play. So, we were able to form TWO Jazz Lab Bands that are meeting after school! They are cleverly named Jazz Lab 137 & Jazz Lab 142. These two Bands along with the Jazz Ensemble and Combos means that Jazz is alive and well in Tiger town. The students have been working hard and sounding GREAT and just in time for a very busy month of Jazz performances.
