Jazz Ensembles

Jazz Combos

Students who play brass, woodwind, percussion instruments or sing are invited to join a jazz combo. These ensembles will focus on the fundamentals of improvisation and will perform small group jazz literature including blues, swing, bebop, cool, hard bop, fusion, and alternative jazz.

Jazz Ensemble 

This ensemble performs standard jazz arrangements as well as the newest contemporary jazz publications. Performance opportunities include concerts, tours, and special events. The ensemble also performs with the jazz faculty and/or special guest artists two or three times a year.
