Jazz Choir is a highly select mixed ensemble for students who demonstrate high levels of vocal skill and personal responsibility, as well as a scholarly attitude toward learning musicianship. Emphasis will be on developing jazz tone and style, improvisation techniques, advanced levels of choral tuning, and intricacies of jazz performance. Weekly practice outside of school is required. Participation in 10 to 15 performances, in addition to regular school concerts is required. It is recommended that students in Jazz Choir also be in another choir in the Grandview Performing Arts Department, but it’s not mandatory.
