The O’Dowd Music Department offers student musicians a number of ways to showcase their talents. From Jazz Workshops and Jazz Combo to Advanced Jazz Band, jazz aficionados have plenty of opportunity to play what they love. For those who prefer other styles of music, we field string orchestra or symphonic bands as well. Regardless of which band you choose, students will get the chance to perform at various festivals and concerts throughout the year.
