Garfield High School Vocal Jazz is an audition-in group, composed mainly of juniors and seniors. They perform and compete extensively. Participation in Vocal Jazz requires heartfelt commitment from its devoted singers, many of whom are student leaders, athletes and scholars. Most Vocal Jazz students are members of Concert Choir. The group rehearses before or after school 4 days per week. Auditions are held annually for current GHS Students in the Spring for the following year. This ensemble focuses on developing jazz idioms, including vocal improvisation, sight reading and performance skills.
Vocal Jazz enjoys a busy year of travel, performances, and competitions including all of the Concert Choir performances plus:
- Out-of-state jazz festivals
- Annual Vocal Jazz Night solo performance at Seattle’s Royal Room in Columbia City
GHS Vocal Jazz is available for club meetings, luncheons, dinners, and special entertainment events. Please contact us for booking information.
