Jazz Ensemble

The “Flight of Sound” Jazz Ensemble poses for a photo on state at the 2022 Jazz Band Music Performance Assessment.

Mr. Venezio poses with the State Superior plaque that the Jazz Ensemble earned on March 22, 2022 for their amazing performance at State in Vero Beach.

Jazz Under the Stars is an important fundraising event that the Jazz Ensemble participates in each spring.  This year, we included a Silent Auction at the event.  Many local businesses donated yummy desserts and auction items and we raised over $5,000 for the band program!

The “Flight of Sound” Jazz Ensemble is made up of 5 saxophones, 5 trumpets, 5 trombones, and a rhythm section. Admission is by audition only and students must be members of the marching band and one of the concert bands in order to participate in the jazz program.

Our Jazz Ensemble has earned Superior ratings at 9 of the 12 Jazz Band Music Performance Assessments since the school opened. They earned an Excellent rating at the 2010 State Jazz Assessment and a Superior rating at the 2022 State Assessment, the first State Superior in school history.
