High School All Stars - San Jose Jazz

High School
All Stars

Our audition-based big band and combo providing pre-professional training in jazz theory and performance returns for the
2021-22 school year

Students advance their skills

Our High School All Stars (HSAS) program is designed to help students achieve mastery of improvisation techniques while advancing their knowledge of music theory, arranging, composition, performance and jazz history. The group rehearses three times per month and performs in professional venues all over the region.

In the recent past, HSAS has performed at the San Jose Jazz Summer and Winter Fests, Monterey Jazz Festival, Monterey Next Generation Jazz Festival, Joint Venture Silicon Valley “State of the Valley” and the “Season of Hope” Series at St. Joseph’s Cathedral. Recent graduates have gone on to attend music programs at New York University, University of Southern California, Eastman School of Music, Oberlin College, Florida State University, California State University Northridge and San Jose State University.

The High School All Stars program is supported by San José State University.

"I would like to acknowledge once more the High School All Stars. Oh my goodness! I was so impressed...so impressed. They were fantastic!"
