Jazz Band III

About Jazz Band III

Jazz III studies advanced structure and arrangement of jazz music, and works on honing improvisational techniques. Jazz III performs frequently at M-A’s Performing Arts Center, in the community, and in festivals.

The ensemble also features a Jazz Combo, which is a select group of Jazz III students.

Last December, Jazz III earned first place in the Advanced Jazz Band Category at the San Joaquin Delta Jazz Festival, and the Jazz Combo placed first for the second year in a row.

In April 2018, Jazz III traveled to and performed in Spain.

In 2019, Jazz III will perform in both the San Diego Heritage Festival and the Reno Jazz Festival.

All families should have now paid the first San Diego trip payment of $250. Checks are preferred to avoid online fees; please write them out to Menlo-Atherton Music Boosters and bring them directly to Mr. Kurrus. You can also pay through PayPal to musicboostersforma@gmail.com. Please email Celeste Baranski with any questions.
