Georgetown Day School Jazz Ensemble

Music is an important part of every child’s life at GDS. We seek to create a foundation for a lifelong love of music and to foster active audiences, accomplished performers, and musically literate students.

The Jazz Ensemble is a classic big band (reeds, trombones, trumpets, guit, piano, bass, drums) as well as other instruments (flute/clarinet/vibraphone/violin, etc) performing music from the Swing Era and beyond. Written music, "head" arrangements, improvisation, and more culminate in performances of music by Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Sun Ra, and contemporary big band composers. Students will participate in several performances throughout the year on and off campus. Jazz Chamber Ensemble and Jazz Ensemble - Big Band will combine for special events and repertoire presentations.
