Williams Jazz Repertory Ensemble Concert

Small Jazz.inddThe Williams Jazz Repertory Ensemble devotes itself to the study and presentation of significant composers and movements in jazz history.

This concert the WJRE performs music by Charles Mingus. The ensemble presents The Music of Charles Mingus with classics like Jelly Roll, Boogie Stop Shuffle, and Goodbye Pork Pie Hat. The WJRE offers the punch of a big band and the chamber music intimacy of a small combo, and possesses a deep bench of accomplished young soloists. The band is led by director Kris Allen.
