CONGRATULATIONS & WELCOME
to the 2019 WJO Honour Jazz Bands!


The Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra’s annual Honour Jazz Bands program provides students from across the province the opportunity to gather together for a shared experience of fast-paced musical challenge and growth in the context of a big band. Participants will work closely with Manitoba’s finest jazz educators and performers.

Rehearsals take place over the course of three fast-paced and exciting days in preparation for the final concert as part of the TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival. 

   Attendance Policy:
The Honour Band must take priority over all other activities (ie. work commitments, school and non-school functions, etc.). Participants are to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to each rehearsal.

All required music will be sent to students a week ahead of the first rehearsal.
