jabba

JABBA stands for John Adams’ Bucket Band of Awesomeness.  Hailing from the tradition of found percussion, busking, and high-profile productions like STOMP and Blue Man Group, JABBA is a collection of 25 students that meets every day after school.  Students in JABBA are required to aurally learn new material quickly, work collaboratively with other students, and demonstrate intermediate rhythmic proficiency.  The group uses regular construction/paint buckets to support rhythmic improvisation, collective composition, and group performance.  As with all ensembles at Sympatico, JABBA regularly collaborates with other ensembles across the program.
