Three Jazz Combos are formed under the auspices of the MIT Chamber Music Society. They include approximately 20 students ranging from intermediate to advanced levels. Jazz Combos study and perform traditional and contemporary small group jazz literature and improvisation, with opportunities for students to compose/arrange for the ensembles. Combos rehearse once weekly with renowned Boston jazz bassist, Keala Kaumeheiwa, and are also expected to meet independently. The combos perform one concert per semester. CMS Jazz Combos are coordinated and overseen by Dr. Fred Harris.
