IU Vocal Jazz Ensemble

The IU  Vocal Jazz Ensemble is the premiere vocal jazz group in the Jacobs School of Music.

Vocal Jazz Ensemble I, Steve Zegree, Director
Vocal Jazz Ensemble II, Ly Wilder Director

Programming includes arrangements and compositions culled from the most challenging and sophisticated repertoire in the vocal jazz idiom, ranging from bop to swing to big band, to R&B, as well as current  and contemporary charts.  

An emphasis on solo singing  and improvisation is a vital part of the ensemble experience, and student writing and arranging is encouraged. 

The ensemble is open to any Indiana University student (by audition) and participation is required for Jazz Voice majors.
