Ban​ds and Jazz

Shasta College offers a variety of ensemble opportunities for the community.  For instrumental jazz music, we offer choices for most skill levels and ages.  If you are an intermediate-level student who wants to be part of an ensemble, the Shasta College Jazz Ensemble would be a great choice (no auditions required).  If you are an intermediate-to-advanced musician interested in both standard and contemporary band literature, the Shasta College Symphonic Band would be an excellent choice (no auditions required).  For those of you who are advanced musicians, and want to gain experience in the study and performance of big-band style jazz arrangements, the best choice for you might be the Shasta College Jazz Big Band (auditions required). 

Whether you decide to join one of our jazz ensembles, or our symphonic band, or just attend one of our concerts, we are confident that you will have a fun and unforgettable experience!
