All-City Jazz Band
The players in this Ensemble belong to our Junior and Senior Bands although many choose to play a different instrument. Since the musicians need to have an advanced ability on their instrument (good range, solid embouchure and know their chromatic fingerings) many start their second instrument in June to ensure they are ready for Jazz, Rock, Latin and/or Pop charts in September. The Band meets once per week on Thursdays from 3:30 - 5:00 pm, alternating between PCSS and FHC band rooms. Transportation can be arranged. Please talk to the Band Directors directly.
We like to call the Jazz Band our gig band! This band tours to 2 - 3 Yukon communities, usually April, performing 5 concerts in 2 days. The band also performs at Music For a Winter's Eve in December, Sounds of Spring & Arts in the Park in May, the Dessert & Dance in February and has performed in the Main Tent for Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous.
