Aberdeen University Jazz Orchestra and Aberdeen University Jazz Band

Both ensembles are part of the Aberdeen University Jazz Society, which also provides the opportunity for members to play in smaller jazz combos and to participate in jazz master classes and workshops throughout the year. The bands perform regularly in a range of venues including Aberdeen’s Blue Lamp, considered to be one of the best jazz venues in the country. Both bands perform annually in the Aberdeen Jazz Festival.

How to join: AU Jazz Orchestra is an auditioned ensemble. For AU Jazz Band only rhythm section and singers are required to audition. You can sign up for an audition by contacting the Music Office. Auditions are in an informal, open rehearsal format. They are designed so that you can be placed in the ensemble that is most suited to your playing.
