Jazz Band

Jazz Band MUSC1700, 1-hour credit
Mondays 7-9 PM Speer Chapel
Director: Mr. George Faber

Jazz is amazing! Jazz is a fusion of the musical traditions of Africa and Europe, and from its beginnings in New Orleans has blossomed into a rich culture of many styles, from Dixieland to Big Band to Bebop to Modern, and everything in between. Though first played only in clubs, its artistic excellence and complexity has moved it into almost every university as an academic discipline - and it is great fun to play.

Led by local jazz legend, Mr. George Faber, the LeTourneau University Jazz Band members hone their skills in an atmosphere of fun and creativity.  On occasion professional players will join in and/or clinic student players.  Auditions for saxes/woodwinds, trumpets, trombones, and rhythm section are held the first week of the semester in the Speer Chapel.  Students must own or rent their instruments.  For more information please contact Mr. Faber at GeorgeFaber@letu.edu.
