Scott Burns, Director 1 Credit
Mondays and Wednesdays, 2:45PM - 4:15PM

Jazz Ensemble provides students the opportunity to further their musicianship by making music with fellow classmates through the study of jazz, a uniquely American art form. Performing two concerts per semester, Jazz Ensemble performs works in a variety of styles ranging from historically significant pieces written for the bands of Count Basie, Duke Ellington and others, to modern works by currently active bands and composers. Directed by Scott Burns, the band consists of 17-20 members playing the following instruments: saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, guitar, bass, and drums/percussion. Jazz Ensemble is a one-credit course that fulfills the Artistic Knowledge and Experience requirement of the Core Curriculum, as well as the Public Performance component of the Engaged Learning requirement.
