Students interested in performing with the Jazz Band this spring should attend the first rehearsal from 5:20 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 13 in Room 142 of the H. F. Johnson Center for the Fine Arts. The audition will consist of a live “sit in” reading session with the previous band members while rehearsing. No improvisation will be required for admittance to the band. Currently, there are openings for piano, guitar, trumpet, and trombone.

The Jazz Band meets from 5:20 to 6:30 p.m. each Tuesday and, occasionally, on Fridays at the same time. The Jazz Band is under the direction of Professor James Ripley, who also provides opportunities for music education students to conduct the band.
