Jazz Ensemble

The Fresno State Jazz Ensemble is the "B" band to the Jazz Orchestra, but is a dominating ensemble in its own right, and features music majors and non-music majors alike. The group is under the direction of Richard Giddens. The group consistently earns high marks at the Reno Jazz Festival and boasts musicians highly sought after for performances in the San Joaquin Valley. For more information about this ensemble, please contact Richard Giddens at
