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 except Jazz Band IV are by audition. Typically rhythm section players and horn players are auditioned for groups during the first week of fall quarter. Singers for Vocal Jazz I are auditioned in the spring prior to fall quarter.
