The University of Virginia  Department of Music presents the UVA Jazz Small Groups for an afternoon of Jazz  on Wednesday, May 3rd from noon to 3pm.  Check back in Spring 2023 to find out where they will be performing.  This event is free and open to the public.

Directed by renowned UVA music faculty members Pete SpaarJeff 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.  

We will be hearing from 4 different jazz combos, coached by Mike Rosensky, Jeff Decker and Pete Spaar. 
Groups will be announced from stage.
