Ridley High School Jazz Band Program

The Ridley High School Jazz Band is under the direction of Mr. Josiah Krawiec (Krav-itz). The band rehearses twice a week after school, and performs as often as the schedule allows, ending their season with the Ridley Festival of Arts.


Over the past few years, they have had the privilege of sharing the stage with many incredible musicians including Terrell Stafford, Dave Liebman, Tom Malone, Larry McKenna, Ian Hendrickson Smith, Joe Magnarelli, and John Fedchock.


Mr. Krawiec would like to thank this evening’s hosts for their warm hospitality.

He would also like to thank all of the parents, staff, and the Ridley School District administration for their support.
