Jazz Orchestra II
MUSC 458
Spring 2024
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.
Crosslisting: AFAM 397

A continuation of MUSC 457, this course is for those with commitment to the American musical tradition called jazz. Skill and experience are highly desirable but, consistent practice is the biggest prerequisite. Small and large-ensemble repertoire composed by Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, Thad Jones, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Fletcher Henderson, John Coltrane, and many other composers will be deeply engaged. Intensive practice and rehearsal of the compositions, as well as class presentations of readings, will lead to development of ensemble and solo skill. The commitment to rehearsal of the compositions, as well as listening and reading assignments, will culminate in an end of semester public concert.
