The IMS Jazz Band has been very busy! They have traveled to Jerry Thomas and Beacon Cove to perform for next year’s incoming students, they performed for the IMS assemblies before Spring Break, and they performed at the Run for Renee. Jazz Band meets as a club twice a week but is an invaluable asset to our band program as well as to our school.
The Jupiter Performing Arts Fund sponsored a Percussion Master Class that was hosted in the IMS Band Room. Nathan Skinner, who is a highly skilled percussionist, came and shared his talent and techniques with students from IMS and other schools.
