Jazz Bands at Minnetonka


Minnetonka High School offers participation in two extra curricular jazz ensembles, Jazz Ensemble and Jazz Too! Both groups rehearse after school during the school year. Auditions for both groups are held in the fall.  Contact either Mr. Mortensen or Mr. Rosen with questions.

Music Listening


Music Listening is a competition for students throughout the state of Minnesota. Teams of three students study musical pieces selected each year for the contest. Each year the contest has a featured composer, genre and type of ethnic music. This year’s competition featured composer Maurice Ravel, the Minimalism genre and Music in China. The teams meet with Mr. Mortensen to study and prepare for the competition.

Check out the official Minnesota High School Music Listening Contest page.
