Nova Scotia Honour Jazz 2013-14
The Nova Scotia Honour Jazz program offers student musicians and vocalists of all abilities an opportunity to learn jazz and take their playing to the next level in a fun atmosphere with some of the finest jazz educators and performers in the province.
Join others from across the region in learning and playing in big bands and combos, at a junior or senior level. Vocalists have the opportunity to sing with a Vocal Jazz Ensemble and with one of the bands. Musicians will be placed in the appropriate level following an audition.
