This is a standard–size big band and performs both traditional and contemporary literature written for large jazz ensemble. Traditionally, the ensemble performs in December and May at Eastman’s Kilbourn Hall, and also on “Jazz Street” at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival in late June each year. Other performances are scheduled when opportunities arise. The band rehearses 3 or 4 times prior to each concert. Members commit to each concert according to their schedules.
Bill Tiberio–concert and jazz band instructor at Fairport High School, University of Rochester, Ithaca College, and SUNY Geneseo–directs the ensemble.
