Jazz Band

The Jazz Ensemble, directed by Dr. Dan Bakos, performs on campus and on regional tours.  This big band ensemble serves as the resident band for the annual Sunbelt Jazz Festival, featuring clinic sessions and performances by notable world-class artists such as Bobby Shew, Chris Vadala, Jerry Coker, Vincent DiMartino, Steve Weist, Rob McConnell, Gary Foster, Lew Soloff, Ignacio Berroa, and others.  Auditions are held each semester.  Smaller jazz combos are also available.
