About Jazz Ensembles at UMD:
Under the leadership of Interim Director of Jazz Studies Tim Powell, the School of Music’s jazz ensembles are composed of more than 100 students. The premier UMD Jazz Ensemble frequently performs at many off-campus events including the Maryland Music Educators Association annual conference and various local jazz festivals. Each year, the UMD Jazz Ensemble is one of three elite bands that performs at the Calvin Jones Big Band Jazz Festival—one of the most anticipated events on the D.C. jazz calendar and frequently broadcast on the BET Network. The jazz combos and big bands also perform a variety of outreach concerts at venues including the National Archives, public libraries, the National Building Museum, area schools and at campus events such as Maryland Day, galas and commencement activities.
