Located just down the road from Jazz on 2nd Ave, the Niwot High School Jazz Band (led by Niwot High’s music teacher Wade Roberts) offers a great opportunity for students to explore this truly American art form. Currently there are 3 jazz bands at Niwot High School, accepting beginners through advanced musicians. In 2010 and 2011, members of the jazz bands won awards at the Winter Park Ski-Music Festival. These young musicians also perform at gigs in the community, such as at Oskar Blues.
Jazz on 2nd Ave and the Colorado Jazz Group makes it a priority to showcase the next generation of jazz musicians, and have teamed up with Niwot High School several times over the last 7 years to bring these youngsters to the stage!
