The University of Virginia  Department of Music presents the UVA Jazz Small Groups for an afternoon of Jazz on Wednesday, May 1st from noon to 3pm in the UVA Amphitheater. This event is free and open to the public.

Directed by renowned UVA music faculty members Pete SpaarCalvin Brown and Mike Rosensky, the Jazz Small Groups range in size from quartets to octets and vary in skill-level from beginner-intermediate to advanced.

We will be hearing from 4 different jazz combos, coached by Mike Rosensky, Calvin Brown and Pete Spaar.  The program and performers will be announced closer to the event.
