Jazz Combos – Youth

Register Now

Introducing MacPhail’s new leveled jazz combo program, designed to help students improve their improvisation skills and musicianship while playing with students of similar skill level. As students progress, they will be placed in more advanced combos with more advanced players. Combos will perform at MacPhail and various venues throughout the Twin Cities

Students must audition to be placed in a combo. Students who would like to join a combo mid-year can email Christopher Rochester at to inquire about openings. Auditions for the 2021-2022 school year will be held in September.

MacPhail welcomes all instrumentalists and vocalists to participate in our jazz combos.

Auditions can be an intimidating setting for many people. In the new jazz program at MacPhail, we are aiming to create an environment that fosters creativity and personal identity. When preparing for your audition please try to bring forth the best representation of yourself regardless of what you think we’d like to hear. Jazz, rock, pop, etc… Prepare anything that you feel comfortable playing, and show off who you are as an individual!

If you have any questions, please contact Jazz Coordinator, Christopher Rochester at

From February 2, 2021 to June 27, 2021
