East Bay Jazz High School All Stars

The East Bay Jazz High School All-Stars is an after-school program for high-caliber musical performance and education for high school jazz musicians. East Bay Jazz’s two ensembles, big band and combo, rehearse on a weekly basis and frequently perform between January to June. In East Bay Jazz students develop their skills within the jazz idiom, gain real-world performance experience, and share our love of music with the East Bay community and beyond. East Bay Jazz’s educational programs are fully supported by the LivermoreValleyPerformingArts Center
