The eighteen piece Blue Jazz ensemble studies and performs the music of the foremost big band composers, past and present. This select ensemble is one of the most popular concert groups on the campus. Students must audition for placement in one of two Jazz Ensembles: Blue Band and Green Band.
The DRHS Jazz Combo is a select group of musicians who rehearse weekly and perform on all of the concerts with the large jazz ensemble. During the course of the year the students involved in the combo work to improve their understanding of various styles of small group jazz and consistent growth as creative improvisers.
