UC Jazz
UC Jazz
UC Jazz Ensembles is one of the most respected and historically prominent musical organizations at UC Berkeley, and was founded by students in 1968. It is an on-campus musical organization comprising 12-14 small jazz combos that rehearse weekly and perform regularly for the campus community. Both undergraduate and graduate students of any major/field may participate, and community members are occasionally invited to participate in the program. UC Jazz is not a part of the university’s music department, and most members do not receive any academic credit for participating. As such, participation in UC Jazz is spurred purely by a desire to practice this rich and unique art form. Providing students with comfortable spaces in which to perform and appreciate jazz
is one of the program’s major goals. Each semester, it hosts numerous concerts and events, including the acclaimed “Jazz in the Loft” (formerly “Jazz in the Basement”), a concert series loved and frequented by students, and the bi-annual advanced combo showcase at the Freight & Salvage.

UC Jazz is directed by jazz drummer, composer, and educator Ted Moore, and classes are taught by a faculty comprising some of the best players and educators in the Bay Area.
