Small & Large Ensembles
These ensembles provide an introduction to improvisation/articulation/composition in the jazz
idiom and an opportunity for musical self-inventory within the context
of a 20th-century world music environment. This course develops the
cognitive, sensorimotor, and creative skills by stressing structure
articulation, kinetic efficiency, and sensitive imagining. The aesthetic
balance of performance and musical literacy is vital to the task. All
instruments (including, of course, the human voice) are invited.
