The Carl Junction High School Jazz Band exists as an enrichment opportunity for those students who desire additional musical experience beyond that provided by the concert bands and marching band.  Concurrent enrollment in the band course is required with limited exceptions.  The CJHS Jazz Band will play music from various eras of jazz including big band standards as well as contemporary pieces.  The CJHS Jazz Band will perform for community events, jazz festivals, and jazz concerts.  Based on the amount of student interest, two separate jazz bands may be available.  (One-credit, one-year fine arts elective for grades 9-12.) ​Enrollment by audition only.  Auditions will take place in the spring of the preceding year of enrollment.  This course may be repeated for credit.
