2:00-3:20 p.m Tuesdays and Thursdays
The jazz/rock ensemble is a new auditioned group that plays arrangements of big band jazz music, Tower of Power style funk, and Latin Jazz from the classics to modern styles. This group will be a touring, showcase group for the music department. Auditions are held at the beginning of each semester to fill any open positions. The course may be repeated for credit.
Expectations for this group will be high, and members will be expected to dedicate themselves to the highest standards of performance.
Attendance is required because of the importance of each part.
A minimum of one concert is presented each semester and attendance is required. Other performances, both on and off campus may be required depending on requests and availability of the group.
Attendance and attitude during rehearsals, performance level at performances.
Since only one person is on each part, attendance is crucial at rehearsals and performances. Attendance will be noted as part of the grade in the course.
