There will be multiple combos with meeting times arranged to fit the students' schedules. We have the combo meeting and organization of students on the first Friday of the semester
at 1:15pm in the band room. At that meeting we'll match up students with similar backgrounds, ability and schedules.
We have grown to 6 jazz ensembles this year!
Auditions are held the first week of a semester. Full-time students please attend one or more of the rehearsals on the 1st Monday at 12:15pm, 2pm or 5pm in the band room (all at the Coil School for the Arts). The audition process will be further explained and scheduled there.
The 2021 fall semester has begun! Audition information is on the Auditions page. Auditions are due by Wednesday night! On August 3, 2021 the RCCD Board Of Trustees resolved that all students, staff and faculty must be vaccinated for Covid before setting foot on campus this fall.
