Western University Jazz Ensemble
"There’s only one big band in London likely to play Duke Ellington and Count Basie and Radiohead"
London Free Press
The Western University Jazz Ensemble performs music that encompasses virtually all styles and eras of jazz, encompassing classic repertory from the legendary bands of Duke Ellington and Count Basie as well as music from contemporary writers such as Maria Schneider, Wycliff Gordon, and Geoffrey Keezer. The ensemble’s mission is to provide students with the performance skills and pedagogical knowledge needed for successful careers as creative jazz artist-teachers.
