Juilliard @ SOPAC: Juilliard Jazz Ensemble
Juilliard Jazz, under the leadership of Juilliard alumni Wynton Marsalis, director, and Aaron Flagg, chair and associate director, offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees as well as artist diplomas. The curriculum combines classroom, private studio, and performance ensemble courses with substantial interactions with Jazz masters and multiple off-campus performance opportunities. The department’s programming reflects the Jazz continuum and its American vernacular roots as well as the social and cultural vitality of the music.
Juilliard Jazz Ensemble play more than 50 on- and off-campus performances annually, including international tours as well as performances at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center and the Blue Note. This season marks a new collaboration with the Zinc Bar, located in Greenwich Village, and includes a piano master class series with pianists Eric Reed and Kenny Barron. International exchanges are an important part of the Juilliard Jazz program. This season the school is hosting a student ensemble from the Torino Conservatory in Italy; Juilliard Jazz’s Artist Diploma Ensemble performed in Brazil; a student ensemble from the Tom Jobim Youth Orchestra in São Paulo performed at Juilliard; and the James Morrison Academy in Mt. Gambier, Australia, and Juilliard Jazz will do a student exchange.
