GW Jazz

The GW Jazz Orchestra is the George Washington University’s first and only student-managed big band. Co-Founded in March of 2015 by Zach Sanders and Peter Reiss, the GW Jazz Orchestra (GWJO) has become a respected and well-known presence in the GW community and the DC music scene. GWJO prides itself on its collaborative approach to America’s classical music—repertoire selection is done with extensive input from the band and rehearsals are run democratically. The GWJO performs a wide variety of selections from all segments of the big band literature, including classic swing, Latin, funk, and more, from composers ranging from Duke Ellington and Count Basie to Gordon Goodwin, Thad Jones, and Charles Mingus. They have performed in diverse locations including campus outlets like Betts Theatre and Lisner Auditorium, Glen Echo Park, the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, and of course, Twins Jazz.

 

The GW Jazz Orchestra is also proud to sponsor the GW Jazz Jam Session series every Friday afternoon from 5-7pm in GWU’s Phillips Hall, Room B120.

 

GWJO enjoys enthusiastic logistical, administrative, and financial support from GW’s Program in Music, the Center for Student Engagement, and the Student Association, as well as the guidance of faculty adviser, Prof. Peter Fraize.
