Jazz Band

FROM THE DIRECTOR:

The Osage Jazz Band is a 22-member group featuring some of Osage’s most talented musicians in grades 9-12.  The students compete for their spots by way of an audition held the previous spring.

 

The group maintains a standard “big band” style instrumentation but they perform all genres of music including Swing, Jazz, Latin, Blues, Rock, and Funk.  It’s a highly talented group that encourages improvisation that adds a unique flourish to the performances.

 

A favorite performance for the students as well as the audience is the annual Senior Citizen’s Banquet in November.  Osage Jazz is often invited to entertain at a number of local functions and gatherings. 

 

Osage Jazz Band is a fun, high spirited group that truly enjoys performing.  We hope you enjoy our music and we appreciate your support of our program.
