The UB Jazz Ensemble program consists of two sub-ensembles: the Big Band is a larger, mixed ensemble, while the Jazz Combo program consists of small groups of four to six performers. The specific instrumentation for these groups varies from semester to semester based on the makeup of the students. Interested students must audition at the beginning of each semester.
Jazz Ensemble students also benefit from a variety of jazz theory and repertoire courses in the Department of Music.
The UB Jazz Ensembles are directed by George Caldwell.
Please view our concert calendar for the latest information on upcoming events.
