NEW! Jazz Combo
Jazz combos help students in grades 6-12 learn the art of jazz in a small ensemble setting. The Jazz Combo sessions will provide basic instruction in jazz-related rhythm, tone, style, concept, listening skills, and improvisation. The ultimate goal of this ensemble is to give interested students the opportunity to study and perform jazz ensemble literature. Performances include the annual MCA Music Division Spring Concert, as well as community events and outreach performances September- March. Past performance locations have included; Jeffersons Pub & Grill, Acoustic Cafe, The Minnesota Marine Art Museum, and Wellington's Pub & Grill. There are three combos, which range in size from six to nine players each. All instruments are welcome, but space is limited!
