Jazz Studies

Ensembles

The Jazz Studies department offers four large jazz ensembles, including the Latin Jazz Ensemble, and several jazz combos. All of our ensembles (large and small) play music that encompasses virtually all styles and eras of jazz: classic repertory from the distant and near past, contemporary music, and music that embraces new, forward-looking styles, including student compositions and arrangements. The performance and writing opportunities that are a part of our program are many and varied. Students in the Jazz Studies Department also participate in a variety of other Jacobs School ensembles.
