  • Wondering what people mean when they say JITM? We’ll help you understand what that means.
  • Your student isn’t in Jazz? Funds raised at the Jazz Festival support the Band, Orchestra, Color Guard, and Jazz Band!
  • Don’t have a lot of time to volunteer?  We have many opportunities before and during the event that only take a few hours at a time. Come learn about them at this meeting.
