The Mountlake Terrace High School Jazz Ensembles are recognized throughout the Pacific Northwest and they are hailed as “one of the top five high school jazz bands” by Starbucks, at their annual Hot Java Cool Jazz Concert held at the Paramount Theater, which was a sold out event last year!

MTHS Jazz Ensemble 1 is a six time Finalist in the Essentially Ellington Competition held in New York. They have also participated in the Bellevue Community College Jazz Festival, the Newport Jazz Festival where they placed first in the competition and at the Savannah Spring Central Jazz Festival where there placed 3rd out of 12 top bands that were chosen from auditions, to compete at the event. Students in both Jazz 1 and Jazz 2 have taken top honors at regional and national competitions over the years, and have been featured in All-State and All-Northwest music groups, as well as National Ensembles like the Grammy Bands.

MTHS continues to serve their community by playing throughout the year with performances at local events, businesses, private parties and benefits. They are recognized as the go to performing groups for area functions.

Directing the ensembles is Mr. Darin Faul, who has been teaching and directing these fabulous bands for the past 17 years.

Jazzmeia Horn

Mon, Dec 6 - Tue, Dec 7

“Horn is among the most exciting young vocalists in jazz, with a proud traditionalism that keeps her tightly linked to the sound of classic figures like Nancy Wilson and Betty Carter, but a vivacity of spirit and conviction that places her firmly in the present.” - The New York Times

Mike Stern Jeff Lorber Fusion featuring Jimmy Haslip & Gary Novak

Wed, Dec 8 - Thu, Dec 9

"This album, Eleven, shows why fusing styles is always worth a go. On it, Lorber teamed up with ex-Miles Davis Band member and all round six-string whizz Mike Stern, who sits in the small part of the jazz venn diagram where bebop, blues and rock overlap. His more complex melody making complements Lorber's playing well."
