About the Band
Auditions are open to students in grades 6, 7, and 8 who play trumpet, trombone, saxophone, piano, guitar, bass, or drum set. Jazz students in grades 6, 7 and 8 are encouraged to prepare the required solo and audition for the ensemble. The auditioned band meets for three rehearsals and presents a concert with the Youth Honors Concert Band in the Reichgut Concert Hall in Seton Hill’s Performing Arts Center.
To allow students to audition for and participate in both of Seton Hill’s Youth Honors Bands (Concert Band and Jazz Band), auditions will be held on the same day and rehearsals for the Jazz Band will be held in the mornings on the same days as the Concert Band’s rehearsals (with the exception of the rehearsal before the concert). The concert will feature both groups.
The Youth Honors Jazz Band schedule, tuition information and much more can be found on the Honors Jazz Band Application.
