The primary instrumental group of the Fine and Performing Arts Department is the Rock and Jazz Band. This organization performs a wide variety of jazz, pop, rock, and swing styles.
Standard instrumentation for the group is saxophone, trumpet, trombone, keyboard, drums, bass, guitar, and vibraphone. Other instruments are added occasionally. Members of the group learn how to improvise and develop a keen sense of jazz/rock articulation and styling.
The Rock and Jazz Band is open to the public by audition.
