There are two Jazz groups at Duxbury High School; the Jazz Ensemble and the Jazz band. Both are formed in the Fall within the first few weeks of school. These groups will be decided by audition, and populated accordingly, once those jazz bands are formed no other students are allowed admission unless absences of other needs require additional musicians. The Jazz Ensemble meets Tuesday evening from 6:00 – 7:30 and Jazz Band meets on Thursdays evenings from 6:00 – 7:30.
