Kuna Jazz I
Kuna Jazz I is the premier jazz ensemble in the Band Program and features the finest instrumental jazz musicians at Kuna High School. This outstanding ensemble performs contemporary and standard works for jazz band. Students in Kuna Jazz I work to develop their skills for a higher level of performance and artistry while also preparing for scholarship auditions and college-level playing.
Each year Kuna Jazz I performs at several local and out-of-area events. These events include various local concerts, community events, the District III Jazz Festival, BSU Gene Harris Jazz Festival, and Clinics. Jazz I frequently travels as part of a spring performance tour at concert exchanges and out-of-area jazz festivals.
Membership in Jazz I is open to students by audition only. Participation in marching band and a concert ensemble is a requirement for membership.
Jazz I Information:
As a band, we had a great time Tuesday night as we got together and recorded many of the songs and exercises which we've been working on during the second quarter. I'm so proud of all the students' efforts and their individual practice to put these songs together. It's been a blast for me as a teacher to see their incredible growth during these short 9 weeks!
Below is the link to the YouTube playlist for our recorded material. This link will continue to be available on our band website as well (www.kunabands.com).
Next semester we look forward to having all of our concert band and fall band students participating in the same class together (6th period concert band) and having all of our percussionists in percussion class (3rd period percussion). If you're not sure of your student's band schedule for the remainder of the year, please feel free to send me an email at email@example.com.
Thank you for all of your support during these times and ENJOY THE MUSIC!
