UWM Jazz

The UWM Jazz Ensemble has a unique and collaborative affiliation with the local urban jazz community. As well as servicing the on-campus students, it reaches out to middle and high school jazz performers through its youth programs and jazz festivals.

Join us on campus for the many jazz performances scheduled for this season in the Helen Bader Concert Hall of the Helene Zelazo Center for the Performing Arts.  Ensembles include the Jazz ensemble and small combos.
