Consisting of saxophones, trumpets, trombones, piano, bass, and drums, the Jazz Band explores music of all jazz periods from the Big Band Era to the present.

Emphasis is placed on ensemble jazz playing and the learning of improvisation. Several on and off-campus events are planned each semester including a major concert in Jean Pittman Williams Recital Hall each semester. There are two rehearsals each week throughout the year.
