The Fountain-Fort Carson High School Jazz Band is open by audition to all students currently enrolled in the FFCHS Band program. Students will perform in concerts and festivals, listen to the best jazz artists, and study jazz history and improvisation. The jazz band meets during the spring semester only, but may schedule auditions and additional performances in the fall semester once marching season has concluded. Spring band auditions and fall evaluations will be used to determine placement for participating students. Only students who are concurrently enrolled in Symphonic Band, Concert Band or Percussion Class may audition for this ensemble with the possible exception of guitar, bass and piano players. Jazz Band may not be a student's primary (only) band course during any semester.
