Windjammer is Syracuse University’s vocal jazz ensemble. The group performs several styles of jazz, including swing, bop, contemporary, Latin, and blues, with an emphasis on vocal improvisation.
Established in 1981, the ensemble has shared the stage with an impressive list of performing artists and jazz educators and has performed in a variety of venues. Comprised of no more than 16 voices, the group performs literature from the most current catalogs of vocal jazz writers and arrangers. An additional rhythm section performs with Windjammer.
Auditions take place at the beginning of each semester. For more information, contact Jeff Welcher, director/pianist, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
