Seattle has one all-girls, all-city jazz band and this is it.
The Girls Ellington Project Ensemble, Seattle's only all-city, all-girls jazz band, will submit a recording to the Essentially Ellington Competition with the goal of being a finalist and participating in the festival in New York City in May. After submitting a recording to the festival, the ensemble continues to rehearse and perform through the spring.
If you are interested in joining this ensemble, please email Kelly Barr Clingan to get more information!
