Jazz Band 1

The Roosevelt Jazz Band is a group of advanced music students directed by Ms. Hannah Mowry, who uphold a long tradition of excellence in Big Band Jazz at Roosevelt High School. The band is considered one of the nation’s top high school jazz bands, and has been regularly selected to participate in the highly competitive “Essentially Ellington” in New York City where the band has taken top honors.

The group travels to festivals and competitions throughout the western United States. The band is open to students in grades 9-12. Auditions for the upcoming school year are held in June at the end of the current school year. Students enroll in a class that meets daily, and attend extra rehearsals as required.
