Join the UC Berkeley Jazz Ensemble!

Jazz is alive and well on the UC Berkeley campus and I invite you to
join UC Jazz Ensembles. This Fall we will offer more groups than ever
before – eight small combos, including a Beginning combo, and a big
band. The ensembles meet weekly and we offer practice facilities to

UC Jazz is made up of both music majors and non-music majors (currently
music majors can receive credit) and you will find this to be a great
outlet to really progress in jazz performance. We play at over 40 events
per year, on and off campus, and have performed at such notable venues
as Yoshi’s Jazz Club and Freight and Salvage Theater in Berkeley.

Auditions for new and returning UC Jazz members are held during the
first week of classes. Find out now why you should get involved and how
to get started. I encourage you to visit our website, to review the audition information and learn more
about our groups and instructors.

UC Jazz becomes a second home to many students during their years at Cal
and many students comment that participation in UC Jazz is one of their
most important experiences at Berkeley. Members are encouraged to play
together beyond class time and some students, once they make new friends
and get more involved, eventually form their own ensembles.

Welcome to UC Berkeley Fall 2012, and if you’re interested in playing
jazz, I look forward to meeting you. Please feel free to email me or to
stop by my office any time if you have questions. I’m located in the
basement of the Cesar Chavez Center, Room 74, at the far end of the
hall. Directions and map are in the Contact Information area of our
