Occidental's Jazz Ensemble is dedicated to the performance, study and promotion of jazz at Oxy.
The Occidental College Jazz Ensemble meets weekly to play as an ensemble, learn basic jazz theory, and improve improvisational skills. Along with enhancing the jazz experience through weekly rehearsals, we heighten campus-wide jazz awareness and appreciation through periodic performances during the year. Director Tim Emmons is an acoustic and electric bass player who has wide experience in both the jazz and classical music worlds.
