Jazz Choir Ensembles
The award-winning jazz choir program, under the direction of Dan Bukvich, is the largest of its kind in the country, involving over 200 students each semester. The program consists of four ensembles.
Jazz Choir I (MusA 118/318) is a large choir of nearly two hundred singers that performs custom choral arrangements of various styles with the assistance of fifteen to twenty instrumentalists. It rehearses three hours per week and is open to all university students without an audition.
Jazz Choir II (MusA 365) is a highly select small vocal jazz ensemble, specializing in close harmony arrangements and choral versions of instrumental jazz standards. This group rehearses two hours per week and serves as the premier touring jazz choral ensemble at the University of Idaho.
Membership in Jazz Choir II is strictly by invitation of the director.
With some exceptions, singers in the small vocal jazz ensemble are selected from within the membership of Jazz Choir I.
Jazz Choir I Mon/Wed/Fri 3:30 - 4:20 p.m.
Jazz Choir II Mon/Wed 5:30 - 6:20 p.m.
