Jazz @ GS

The GS Jazz Ensemble meets on a regular basis during the spring at the High School. The band is open to any student in grades 7-12. Students do NOT have to be enrolled in a band class at the MS or the HS to participate in jazz ensemble, but students may have to pass an audition to become a member.
