Vocal Jazz 10S (VCJ10S)
Grade 9 students are generally placed in our Junior Vocal Jazz ensemble, Reverb. Reverb is an un-auditioned group of musicians in grade 9 & 10. Reverb typically meets every day in Semester 2. Students are also encouraged to be part of the Junior or Intermediate Choirs for at least 1 semester. This course is intended to serve as an introduction to the contemporary/Jazz genres and is highly recommended for students who wish to be part of Tonic or Inversions in the future. Group members must be available to perform at the Vocal Jazz Workshop, Jazz Café and GVC's Spring Jazz Night.
