Jazz Small Groups 2022

April 10, 2022 - 7:00pm
Old Cabell Hall

The UVA Small Jazz Groups will present a concert on Sunday, April 10th, 2022 at 7pm in Old Cabell Hall. 

Directed by renowned UVA music faculty members Pete Spaar, Jeff Decker and Mike Rosensky, the Jazz Small Groups range in size from quartets to octets and vary in skill-level from beginner-intermediate to advanced. Besides a formal concert at the end of each semester, the groups do several outreach performances in the Charlottesville community, and give a final end-of-year celebration concert, "Jazz in the Amphitheatre." Repertoire is chosen from a diverse range of jazz styles by such greats as Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, Lee Morgan, Antonio Carlos Jobim, among many others, as well as original compositions by both faculty and students.
