The Jazz Band at Saugus High School has enjoyed a long tradition of community involvement and excellence throughout the SCV. It is a place where our students are challenged to grow in their musicality as well as their knowledge of the genre. For years, the jazz band has performed monthly at Vincenzo’s Pizza in Saugus. This is an opportunity for students to share the things they are doing with the community and to collaborate with professional musicians that perform with the ensemble. The Jazz Band meets during 8th period, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 – 5:30 PM after school, and is open by audition to all students. Jazz Band also competes in jazz festivals regionally, and in the past ten years has consistently placed in the top three spots in its division.
