The Jazz Lab Band will perform jazz charts by Chuck Mangione, Bert Zvacek, Dave Mills, and Bill Chase.
Dr. Douglas Snapp, Director of Jazz Studies, said of the Contemporary Groups, ”The students choose their own music, solos, as if they were doing this in the real world, running a group and gigging at a club,” Snapp said. “It’s good experience for them. The groups are totally open and a great place for creativity.”
