Jazz Ensembles


The CV High School Jazz Ensembles are groups of approximately 20 instrumentalists who are chosen by audition in November of each school year. Students are placed in either Jazz Ensemble I, II, or III based on their performance and knowledge in the jazz idiom. There are three bands (to the extent of student interest) that meet after school during November through mid May. Advanced arrangements in the various jazz styles are studied and played. An introduction to improvisation and solo playing is also provided. The bands perform at festivals, concerts, school fairs, and community events throughout the area in the spring of the school year.

Students are made aware of the attendance requirements upon auditioning for the ensembles. Students wishing to participate in the Jazz Ensembles must also be enrolled in Concert Band, Symphonic Winds, Orchestra, or Choir. Exceptions to this may be made for guitar and piano players that study privately outside of Cumberland Valley High School.

The Director of Jazz Band I is  Scott Ainscough.

The Director of Jazz Band 2 is David Porter.

The Director of Jazz Band 3 is Scott Ainscough.
