The 2019 World Jamboree Band will be comprised of up to 80 musicians who will supply quality music for ceremonies, events, and generally to entertain the many Scouts and visitors to the Jamboree. Musicians performing with the band should register as IST members through their home NSOs. All performances will take place on the property of the Summit Bechtel Scout Reserve, the home of the 2019 World Scout Jamboree. The repertoire will be a diverse mix of international selections. While most scores will be written for instrumentation of standard western instruments (pop/rock/jazz/classical), musicians proficient on any instrument are encouraged to apply, and will be included in rehearsals and performances. Band members will be made up of registered Jamboree IST members, with initial preference given to youth members, as defined by the WOSM. (Scouts ages 16 - 25.) IST members older than the age of 25 may still apply and may be included if space permits. Band members will be accepted according to ability and instrumentation beginning March, 2018. Fees are equivalent to IST cost for your NSO.
