The Bates College Jazz Band is a full big band of skilled and talented Bates students. We perform at least one concert per semester and play works from a large and varied repertoire; our past concerts have featured pieces by artists such as Stevie Wonder, Michael Brecker, Steely Dan and The Count Basie Orchestra. The band is a wonderful opportunity to play in a large group setting and also provides the opportunity to improvise.
Feel free to contact Director Larry Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions regarding the Orchestra.
