The ACU Jazz Ensemble is comprised of 16 to 19 students, both music and non-music majors. Directed by Derek Brown, this ensemble performs many different styles of music from the Swing era to the present. Its active performance schedule on and off campus consists of annual appearances at Sing Song, various social events and community activities, as well as a three-show concert series. In past years this group has performed at the Wichita Jazz Festival and with professionals such as Allen Vizzutti, Ernie Watts, Carl Fontana, Bill Watrous, Jon Faddis, and Vince DiMartino. Auditions are held on campus during the first week of classes.
