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.
