1. The LV Jazz Band is an auditioned ensemble in which the primary function is to educate students through the performance of music in the style of jazz. The typical jazz band season begins in November and ends in May. Rehearsals for this ensemble take place at 7:15 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays (little to no class time is used). The LV Jazz Band performs at the Winter Concert, Spring Concert, District Music Contest, UNO Jazz Festival, and Northeast Jazz Festival. Although it is not the primary purpose of this ensemble, the LV Jazz Band can provide entertainment at school or community functions in the winter and spring.
