UNL has a wide variety of jazz ensembles that are available to the student populace via a traditional audition process. Large ensembles are auditioned at the beginning of the Fall semester and are generally regarded as a full academic year commitment. Jazz combos are auditioned every semester and encompass a wide range of instrumentations. While audition materials change every year, you can expect to be asked to play several scales (Major, Minor Variants, and Symmetrical), perform a pre-selected prepared piece, sightread, and improvise (optional).
