The Millennium MS Jazz Ensemble is another advanced performing ensemble. The group is made up of 7th and 8th graders that have been admitted through an audition process. This group focuses on the development of skills unique to jazz music.
The Jazz Ensemble is one of the more prolific performing groups at Millennium. They are a standard part of school-based performances, such as the Performing Arts Showcase, The Literacy Show, and the Black History Show. Additionally, this group tours area elementary schools as a representative of Millennium Middle School.
Students also perform at Florida Bandmasters Association events, such as Solo & Ensemble MPA, Jazz Band MPA, and various other events throughout the year. Students routinely earn the highest rating at these MPAs, the designation of "Superior."
Jazz Ensemble students are held to the highest standard of musicianship. At home practice is required, and private lessons are strongly encouraged.
