About Experience Jazz 2019

Experience Jazz combos will rehearse Saturdays from 1:30pm-3:30pm at High School for Recording Arts, located at 1166 University Ave W, Saint Paul, MN 55104. Students are expected to participate in all rehearsals and performances, and bring their instruments to all rehearsals.
