Big Bands - Combos - Jazz Courses - Liberal Arts Jazz Emphasis

The University of Wisconsin–La Crosse has an outstanding jazz program with performance opportunities for all in large and small ensembles. The jazz program at UWL is very active, with multiple campus concerts each year, scholarship fundraiser blockbuster events like Swinging Yuletide and Big Band Cabaret, clinics for high schools, and some regional touring. In addition, the jazz combos perform in area clubs, such as the Root Note in downtown La Crosse.

Participants in the program come from all colleges and majors of the university. For music majors, we offer an emphasis in Jazz Performance with a BA or BS in Music.

We hope you enjoy browsing our website and invite you to visit and attend our concerts.
