L-S Jazz Warriors

The Jazz Warriors Combo is an auditioned group that meets once a week to play jazz in a combo setting. The focus is on learning jazz standards, developing an individual improvisational voice, and a communicative group sound. The group performs at school concerts and at events in the community. Contact thomas_grandprey@lsrhs.net to schedule a performance.

Students are eligible to audition if they are enrolled in a major music ensemble (Concert or Symphonic Band, Orchestra, or Choir)
