Jazz Ensemble is normally for members of the Warrior Band. Keyboard and guitar players are invited to audition for the Jazz Ensemble. The group performs at secular concerts, the WELS Jazz Festival, WSMA contests and various other events throughout the year. Auditions determine membership.
Saturday, January 21, 2017 our Jazz Band is joining six other schools to workshop and then present a free concert at 7:00 p.m. The concert will feature the artistry of Chris Vadala, former featured saxophonist with Chuck Mangione. The concert will take place in Wisconsin Lutheran College's Center for Arts and Performance - Schwan Concert Hall, 8815 W. Wisconsin Avenue. Call the Box Office at 414.443.8802 to reserve free general admission tickets. (Participating student info sheet is below.)
Pep Band performs at select athletic events and pep assemblies. Most rehearsals take place prior to performances. No audition is necessary. Attendance at a percentage of Pep Band performances is typically part of the Band course grade. See Mr. Pufahl with questions.
Wind ensembles, flute choirs, clarinet choirs, brass choirs and percussion ensembles are formed when performance opportunities arise. See the Fine Arts calendar for these opportunities.
When WSMA competitions are in season, see below for the schedule of performances.
