    Riffing on Pure Talent


    Conducted by Greg Keel

    Hamline Jazz Ensemble is a 25-piece jazz band open to both non-majors and majors, improvisers and non-improvisers. The group meets two evenings per week and plays a wide variety of repertoire from jazz standards to Latin, R&B, and contemporary styles.

    In addition to end-of-semester concerts the Jazz Ensemble plays for Hamline's annual Swing Dance, a hugely popular all-community event.

    Students wishing to join the ensemble are encouraged to audition at the beginning of the semester.
