About the Ensembles


Jazz Ensemble

Since 1972, the Jazz Ensemble has performed concerts nationally and internationally. The Jazz Ensemble is open to all students of the University by audition. Liberal Arts students are encouraged to play side by side with their music major peers. The emphasis of the ensemble is to develop skills which would make a student competitive in the jazz/commercial playing field, as well as competent in conducting ensemble of their own. Literature for the ensemble includes a wide array of styles from traditional and modern jazz, progressive rock, Latin, and beyond!

Jazz Lab Band

This ensemble is available to any campus student without audition.  Secondary instruments are encouraged in the band and all music education majors are encouraged to participate to gain jazz experience.

Jazz Combos

With an emphasis on improvisation and small group interaction, IWU's Jazz Combos perform jazz standards as well as arrangements and original compositions by combo members. The top combo, Active Ingredient, plays extensively on campus and in the area.
