Small Jazz Ensembles
The jazz studies program offers a diverse and creative, small, group performance experience. At present, the program features six small ensembles, each coached by one of our experienced jazz faculty members. The bands cover a range of styles including bebop, Latin-jazz, free jazz, funk, hip-hop and many others. Students are strongly encouraged to compose and arrange for their own groups. A weekly forum provides opportunity for each ensemble to perform and to receive valuable feedback from peers and faculty and all groups participate in a final concert at the end of each semester.
Jazz Lab I
Jazz Lab I is the University's premiere large jazz ensemble. Jazz Lab I is composed of more advanced students of the jazz studies program.
