About Jazz Band
The WGHS Jazz Band is an audition-only class that meets after school during "7th period." The course covers several styles of music, including swing, blues, Latin, rock, funk, and more. Members of the Jazz Band also perform as members of Wind Ensemble for concerts.
Each year, the Jazz Band participates in 3-4 "home" concerts at WGHS, as well as outside performances. In the 2016-17 school year, they performed at the Folsom Jazz Festival, the Anaheim Heritage Festival, Music in the Parks, the WGPAB Crab Feast, and the Jazz On the Grass fundraiser. The Jazz Band also serves as the pep band for home football games and plays in the Homecoming parade every fall.
Auditions for Jazz Band for the next school year are held each spring.
