Chamber Jazz Program

Aaron Kippola

At Western, our Combo Program contains the jazz elite. We believe our students grow through active performance and quintets rotate into performing venues around the city of Macomb on two nights per week. Students perform original compositions and jazz standards from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Thursday and Friday every week of the semester. These groups are in demand and also perform at other University functions throughout the academic year.  In 2014, the Chamber program received Outstanding recognition for their all original program at the Elmhurst Jazz Festival, all performers receiving Outstanding individual awards as soloists.
