MANITOBA HIGH SCHOOL HONOUR JAZZ BANDS
WITH SPECIAL GUEST MARK DeJONG
The annual Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra Honour Jazz Band program (WHJB) provides students from across the province with the opportunity to gather together for a shared, fast-paced musical challenge and grow together within the context of a big band. Performers are divided into three ensembles—junior, intermediate, and senior—selected based on the strength of the improvisation and performance. Students work closely with some of Manitoba’s finest jazz educators and performers, with rehearsals taking place over the course of three fast-paced and exciting days in preparation for a final concert as part of the TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival.
