The University of Iowa Repertory Ensemble is a big band devoted to performing the works of Jazz mainstream. This ensemble covers the range between early spring and progressive Jazz (Basie, Ellington, Thad Jones, Mingus, etc.). Students learn the conventions of performance practice for each era and the skills for stylistic improvisations. Members of the JRE are selected by audition in the fall of each academic year and are mostly younger undergraduates.
