Jazz Ensembles

The LSU Jazz Ensemble

The LSU Jazz Ensemble was formed in 1980 to promote the mainstream and contemporary big-band jazz idiom and is the premiere jazz student group on campus. The band regularly performs with guest artists. Participation in this ensemble is by an audition held just prior to the beginning of classes each semester. Any LSU student is eligible to audition.

Jazz Lab Band

The Jazz Lab Band also provides excellent playing opportunities for music and non-music majors and exposes students to a wide variety of challenging large ensemble literature. Both bands regularly perform with world-class guest artists and feature talented students.

Jazz Chamber Jazz Groups

The Jazz Area also offers a variety of Jazz Chamber Ensembles that provide students with opportunities to perform in smaller settings under the supervision of jazz faculty and graduate teaching assistants.
