UWMC Jazz Ensemble

The UWMC Jazz Ensemble provides a creative musical outlet for all interested university students interested in performing big band music. Members have the opportunity to learn a variety of jazz, Latin and jazz-rock styles through the jazz ensemble literature, while continuing to develop individual and ensemble musical skills.

Additionally, the course is an important part of the curriculum for music majors and allows these students to apply and reinforce what they are learning in their other coursework. The group performs on campus at least twice each semester, with occasional off-campus performances for festivals, community events or joint concerts with public school groups. No audition is necessary for students with prior experience at the high school-level. Other interested students should contact the instructor.
