HS Jazz Ensemble & Friday Jazz


 
In 2011-2012, The RRHS Instrumental Music Department announced the creation of an additional jazz performance ensemble.  To accommodate our expanding talent base, we created RRHS Friday Jazz. This ensemble joined our current jazz band, which has been renamed the RRHS Jazz Ensemble, as an outlet for those wishing to perform in the jazz medium.

 

RRHS Friday Jazz rehearses every Friday morning that school is in session and performs at regularly scheduled home concerts (i.e., Holiday, Winter) and at the February band fundraising dinner.  One additional spring performance is Memorial Day eve (Sunday night) at the Rocky River Park by the lake.

 

The RRHS Jazz Ensemble continues to rehearse each Tuesday and Thursday morning that school is in session. This group performs at regularly scheduled home concerts as well as travels (e.g., IX center, Retirement homes, Rotary events) as ambassadors of RRHS.  

This group also performs Memorial Day eve (Sunday night) at the Rocky River Park by the lake.

 

 

With two bands - one with a heavier schedule and one with a lighter schedule, more students have been able to find a home in a group that matches his/her level of experience and/or level of desired time commitment.
