Program Notes: 


Swing into an evening of jazz! You won’t want to miss three of the UMD School of Music's exemplary jazz ensembles celebrating the works of Duke Ellington, Ella Mai, Stevie Wonder and many more! This performance will feature award-winning vocalist Jazzmeia Horn.


The School of Music’s jazz ensembles are composed of more than 100 students. The premier UMD Jazz Ensemble frequently performs at many off-campus events including the Maryland Music Educators Association annual conference and various local jazz festivals. Each year, the UMD Jazz Ensemble is one of three elite bands that performs at the Calvin Jones Big Band Jazz Festival—one of the most anticipated events on Washington, D.C.’s jazz calendar and frequently broadcast on the BET Network. Combos and big bands also perform a variety of outreach concerts at venues including the National Archives, public libraries, the National Building Museum, area schools and at campus events such as Maryland Day, galas and commencement activities.
