Mason Jazz Ensemble
The Mason Jazz Ensemble, directed by Jim Carroll, offers opportunities for improvisation, performance, recording, writing, leadership and service. This ensemble (Tues/Thurs 3- 4:15pm) performs at venues including the Shanghai Concert Hall (Beijing, China), Center for the Arts, Hylton Performing Arts Center, Blues Alley, Chantilly Jazz Festival, Law Day and the Jazz Education Network/JENerations Jazz Festival (New Orleans, LA). A highpoint of students’ time in the Mason Jazz Ensemble is Jazz4Justice, an annual concert that combines the Mason Jazz department with local law communities to raise money for the jazz program and public access to justice.
