Summit Jazz Ensemble

The Jazz Ensemble at Summit High School is one of the most popular organizations within the band department. Membership is selective and is determined through auditions in the Fall semester, typically rehearses twice a week after school between January and April.

The Jazz Ensemble performs at one of our largest fundraisers of the year, the Jazz Dinner Dance, as well as select contests throughout the DFW metroplex. The goal of the Jazz Ensemble is to expose SHS band students to the medium of jazz, the various styles in jazz literature, as well as the art of improvisation.
