The Velvet Blue Orchestra is a select group of instrumentalists dedicated to the students’ understanding and performance of standard jazz band literature. Students are expected to study and perform the many different styles associated with the jazz idiom. Music difficulty varies from grade levels 2-6. Improvisation is studied and encouraged among all students. The instrumentation for the jazz band is a set number. Students may be considered for membership when positions become available. Membership is by invitation of the director. When one or more students desire consideration in a particular position, then auditions will be held.
The Velvet Blue Orchestra does many public performances throughout the year and is available for community events and fundraisers.
