The UALR Jazz Ensemble has quickly become a popular ensemble on campus and in the local area. We focus on traditional jazz styles such as Count Basie, Duke Ellington, and Glenn Miller. We also perform student arrangements and modern works such as Pat Metheny and the Beatles. We have participated in the Dardanelle and Arkansas State Jazz Festivals, and we hosted University of Oregon Director of Jazz Studies, Steve Owen, for a concert with the ensemble this past April. We will perform two concerts this fall, Monday evening October 6th and December 8th both at 7:30pm.
If you have an interest in jazz and want to participate in the group, contact Dr. Michael Underwood, Director of the UALR Jazz Ensemble (501) 569-3301 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
