ETHNMUS 91 and 161T, section 1. The UCLA Jazz Orchestra plays jazz standards and student compositions.

Director: Charley Harrison

Jazz Orchestra classes (91 and 161T) are designed for students in the jazz studies concentration. These courses help to fulfill the jazz studies degree requirements and are designed to train the students to become professional jazz musicians.

Occasionally there are openings in the Jazz Orchestra for advanced-level UCLA student musicians who play instruments that are not covered by jazz studies students. There is an audition in the fall.
