The Elizabethtown Area High School is pleased to introduce the new look to EAHS Jazz. Ursa Major is the new name of the EAHS Jazz Band. Ursa Major focuses on the standard literature of the big band medium as well as exploring the newest releases of jazz repertoire. The literature that is performed by this ensemble includes that of the classic jazz bands of Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey and Stan Kenton as well as music of newer jazz musicians and groups. We will soon include a repertoire list for Ursa Major. If you are interested in having Ursa Major perform during the February-May time frame, please e-mail Steven Barraclough or call 367-1533.
The Ursa Major schedule is included on the Google calendar on my main webpage.
Ursa Minor is our combo that focuses on small ensemble literature and gives students who are serious about the jazz medium the opportunity to play music that provides more soloistic opportunities. This ensemble will be available for performances in the October - December time frame. If you have a performance opportunity for a jazz combo, please use the above contact information to check on the availability of Ursa Minor.
