The Jazz Studies department offers two vocal jazz ensembles, 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. The performance and writing opportunities which are a part of our program are many and varied. In addition, students in the Jazz Studies Department participate in a variety of other Jacobs School ensembles.

Jazz Ensemble Auditions

Auditions for jazz ensembles are held at the beginning of the fall semester. Auditions for spring semester are held only as needed to fill open chairs.
