Big Bands at Evanston Township High School

Our big bands are modeled after the great swing bands from the 1930’s and 40’s. Big bands have four sections: Saxophone section (5-6 saxes), Trumpet section (4-5 trumpets), Trombone section (4-5 trombones), and a Rhythm section (guitar, piano, bass, drums, and vibes). Only the ETHS Jazz Ensemble utilizes a vocalist in the band.
