  • The Farmington Junior High Jazz Ensemble is made up of 7-9 grade students. The jazz ensemble is not able to rehearse during regular school hours. Instead the band rehearses at 7:00 am every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning. Students do receive credit and a grade for participation in the ensemble. In order to allow more students the opportunity to participate parts are doubled for school concerts. When the band performs at festivals, conventions, or competitions, only the varsity members perform. The Jazz Ensemble has received Superior ratings and critical acclaim at all festivals and competitions it has participated in. Some of the more recent accomplishments include Superior ratings at the first ever Utah, State Jazz Festival.
