Club Description: The Lockport Township High School Jazz Ensembles are a extra-curricular component of the Lockport Band program in which students explore various musical styles within the jazz idiom. The Jazz Ensembles have been active in many festival events, both in Illinois and nationally, with many students winning Outstanding Jazz Musician Awards. Instrumentation includes saxophones, trumpets, trombones, piano, bass, guitar, and drums. The level of the students' interest determines the structure of the jazz program. Students must be enrolled in one of the curricular bands (except for guitar and bass players). Auditions are held in early November, and groups rehearse a minimum of twice a week. Performances include jazz festivals, the Annual Jazz Showcase, and other various community functions.
