Belmont Jazz Ensemble plays some of the most challenging and stimulating music from the jazz repertoire. The ensemble performs diverse literature that ranges from big band swing to modern jazz-fusion. This select group, consisting of five saxes/reeds, five trumpets, and four trombones and a full rhythm section permits ample room for individual solos and full ensemble.
The Jazz Ensemble performs several concerts each semester both on and off-campus. Past performance excursions have been throughout the Tennessee area. A two-semester (Fall and Spring) commitment is mandatory for all participants. There are two weekly rehearsals that members attend: Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. This course offers one hour of ensemble credit.
Music Conductor: Dr. Jeff Kirk, Belmont University.
