CWU Band I wins Monterey Next Gen Jazz Festival contest.
Our award-winning ensembles provide a place for everyone that wishes to participate in a large-group jazz experience. With three vocal jazz ensembles and four jazz big bands, there are many opportunities to explore the literature available. We also have numerous combos, which are coached by faculty.
All ensembles are by audition. Typically rhythm section players and horn players are auditioned for groups during the first week of fall quarter. Singers for the vocal jazz groups are also auditioned during the first part of the quarter along with some auditions in the spring prior to fall quarter.
Pick up a copy of the recently released CD "In a Mellow Tone." Available at the CWU Wildcat shop or online, in a mellow tone features 10 tunes from CWU's premiere Jazz ensemble, Jazz Band I.
