The Edmonds Woodway Jazz Ensembles are recognized throughout the Pacific Northwest. This year’s highlights included Outstanding Big Band Award at the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival. Hailed as "one of the best five high school jazz bands" by Starbucks they are often featured at the annual Hot Java Cool Jazz Concert held at the Paramount Theater.
Student soloists and combos have also achieved the highest honors. Students in both groups have taken top honors at regional and national competitions, and have been featured in All-State and All-Northwest music groups as well as National Ensembles like the Grammy Bands.
Directing the ensembles are Mr. Jake Bergevin, and directing Jazz II is Mr. Alex Dugdale. Both are highly accomplished musicians and performers, and two of the most sought after teachers in the Northwest.
