Jazz Combos

Wade Beach

Ensemble Director: Prof. Wade Beach

The Mason Jazz Combos, a smaller chamber ensemble, are a vital part of the Jazz Studies curriculum. Directed by jazz pianist, Wade Beach, these exploratory groups provide students opportunities in improvisation, composition and arranging as well as small ensemble performing experience. The Mason Jazz Combos perform several times a semester, with previous performances at the Mason Jazz Festival and International Jazz Day concerts, and are open to music and non-music majors, instrumentalists, and vocalists of all musical abilities.
