The competition season for Jazz is March, and sometimes the end of February. Jazz band competitions are held at Catholic elementary schools throughout the archdiocese, usually on Saturday evenings.
Please be aware that this is a commitment of your child. It is the same as joining a travel team and traveling to sports competitions. You travel to these competitions and the band performs at the competition. Parents enjoy these events.
Missing students means an upset in the balance between the instruments and may affect the outcome of the band’s ranking. Please try to attend all competitions. If your child is not attending a competition give Mr. Facenda ample notice.
We are a team and we need your child with us!
