Jazz

Wilton High School has three Jazz groups.  Jazz I & II attend Jazz symposiums at local high schools in the Spring to compete against and learn from other groups and judges.  Jazz III does not compete, but teaches the musicians how to play the genre.  All Jazz groups practice weekly.  All Jazz groups perform in the special Jazz concert in the Spring.
