Jazz Bands at Harvard

Jazz programs at Harvard were initiated in 1971 by Director of Bands Thomas G. Everett and have developed in conjunction with the Office for the Arts at Harvard since 1976. Programs currently include two eighteen-piece undergraduate jazz ensembles, with opportunities for improvisational and combo experience, and an annual Jazz Master in Residency in which artists work and perform with undergraduates. In addition to playing local jazz festivals, concerts, and dances on campus, band students study the history, styles, and literature of jazz and develop listening and improvisation skills.
