Graduate Students, current conductor.

Avenue C, Third Street and West End are also complete vocal jazz ensembles in the Jazz Studies Division, directed by our Graduate Teaching Fellows. Differences between the four levels of ensembles include size of the group, composition of the group (all females or all males, for example), and repertoire focus.
