Perform in Parkland's Jazz Combo

For decades, the Parkland Jazz Combo has provided a great opportunity for upcoming musicians in the Champaign-Urbana area to gain playing and improvisation experience in a small jazz group setting. The ensemble rehearses on Mondays, at 3:00-5:45 pm in room C148The repertoire often consists of jazz classics and well-known standards as well as originals and arrangements by the members themselves. The group often performs at what has become a home for jazz in Champaign-Urbana - the Iron Post, and is pleased to perform in the Second Stage Theatre at Parkland College.
