The Slippery Rock University Ensemble feat. The SRU Jazz Singers

The stage of the Piazza IV Novembre traditionally hosts big bands from all-grade schools, from university colleges to high schools. They mostly come from the States, but this year, there is a band from the United Kingdom and one from the Czech Republic.

This is a crucial section of music in the squares because these orchestras play good music in a dimension of cultured amateurism and tomorrow’s professional jazzmen grow among those sections.


The Slippery Rock University Jazz Ensemble is the premiere jazz group in the Department of Music, and proudly continues a tradition of excellence nearly forty years in the making. Entirely comprised of undergraduate students that are chosen by audition, this group performs music that covers the broad range of traditional to contemporary large jazz ensemble music. Students in this ensemble learn advanced technique in stylistic execution, improvisation, and ensemble building skills.

Throughout its history, the award-winning SRU Jazz Ensemble has performed at jazz festivals, high schools, colleges, and other various concert venues in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia.

Aside from numerous concerts, the SRU Jazz Ensemble has recorded five albums since 2000.
