The Jazz Composition Department creates multiple opportunities for student participation in ensembles as performers, composers, and/or arrangers. This allows students to have their works rehearsed and performed live by student musicians. Through participation in these ensembles as performers, students also have the opportunity to perform works by established and well-known composers such as Terence Blanchard, Billy Childs, Andy Milne, Samuel Torres, Maria Schneider, Terri Lyne Carrington, and many others. 

If you have general questions about any of these ensembles, please contact jazzcomposition@berklee.edu.
