University Jazz Ensemble
The University Jazz Ensemble, directed by Terry Vosbein, was formed in 1996 and has grown steadily since its inception. The repertoire of the ensemble ranges from classics from the glory days of the big band to world premiere compositions.
From the legendary sounds of the Big Band classics to the subtle improv hues of its break-out innovative combos, the UJE provides a true educational experience for its students, as well as a memorable listening experience for its fans!
In addition to featured concerts each semester, the UJE has been in constant demand by campus University Jazz Ensemble and community organizations for appearances throughout the area. Performances include University Basketball games, a dedication ceremony at Natural Bridge and as the featured band on the televised 250th Gala Celebration. The UJE has also performed at benefit concerts for a variety of causes. Since 1998 the UJE has accompanied the University Wind Ensemble on their overseas tours including Australia, China and Russia.
