Auditions for the Menifee Jazz Ensemble will be held on Tuesday, August 21st, from 7:00-8:00pm, in the Lab Theatre, Room 204 on the Menifee Valley Campus, located at 28237 La Piedra Road.
The Menifee Jazz Ensemble is seeking musicians playing saxophone, trumpet, trombone, drums, percussion, piano/keyboard, bass and guitar. Bring your instrument and be ready to play. Audition includes sight reading music.
The Jazz Ensemble performs contemporary and classic arrangements of jazz standards, songs, and original jazz compositions. The group plays an eclectic mixture of swing, funk-rock, Latin, and other styles in a big band jazz context. It’s a great place to explore music and learn jazz performance.
The band rehearses every Tuesday night from 7:00 to 9:50, and performs throughout the semester both on and off campus.
A highlight this semester will be a performance in September at the MSJC Foundation Sunset Jazz & Wine Fest.
