Varsity Big Band

Comprised of a select group of approximately 20 musicians, the Varsity Big Band places an emphasis on the performance styles and varied repertoire from a diverse group of the greatest jazz composers. Students are encouraged to develop skills in ensemble performance and improvisational techniques. Clinics are held each year with professional and world-class jazz musicians who actively work in Chicago and beyond. The Big Band rehearses twice weekly.

Jazz Combos

Improvisation and small group interaction are the focus of Northeastern’s Jazz Combos. Coached by Mayo Tiana, students develop advanced improvisatory skills through listening and studying the techniques of the great jazz masters. The ensemble performs several times throughout the year both on and off campus.
