The Jazz Ensembles promotes the art of musicianship by providing the opportunity for interested students to enhance and display their talents by making available the opportunity to develop jazz skills through activities which may include, but are not limited to, regular rehearsal, performing all types of jazz music both on and off campus, maintaining a library of appropriate musical pieces and providing a professional director. The Jazz Ensemble is made up of the Repertory Jazz Orchestra Contemporary Jazz Ensemble and the brand new Big Band 5. The jazz ensembles are member groups of the Rensselaer Music Association
