THURSDAYS:  JAZZ BANDmusic in the Jazz/Blues/Rock styles will be performed.  This group will be selective based on interest.  Drum Set, Saxophones, Trumpets, Trombones are needed.  Flutes and Clarinets can participate as well even though they are not “traditional” jazz instruments.  A tour of elementary schools is tentatively planned for the spring.
