What began as a Summer Jazz Workshop for young musicians in 1998 has blossomed into three full Big Band Jazz Ensembles for students in grades six through twelve. Each Band meets once per week in 1½ hour rehearsals and they perform in local "Monthly Grind" Programs and in formal concerts each semester. Summer Music Workshops have been offered in Jazz (1998-2002) and a Youth Concert Band in 2003, 2004, and 2005.
