CYMS Jazz Band

A group of students stand holding their musical instruments alongside a stage.

The CYMS Jazz Band is a traditional big band and is open to all students in grades 7& 8 whose instruments fall within the

"traditional" format of the big band - saxes, trombones, trumpets, and rhythm section. The ensemble performs at jazz festivals, community and civic events, and the ever popular CYSD Jazz Night in the spring.

The ensemble is formed in January, and rehearses after school through the end of the school year. Auditions are held if there is a surplus of a given instrument.
