This 19-member ensemble, formed in 1969, has received great acclaim both at home and abroad performing America's original art form: jazz. A Texas State jazz alumnus, Kyle Johnson, is now a member of this band and will be making a "hometown" appearance. Concerts by the Jazz Ambassadors are designed to entertain all types of audiences. Custom compositions and arrangements highlight the group's creative talent and gifted soloists. Their diverse repertoire includes big band swing, bebop, Latin, contemporary jazz, standards, popular tunes, Dixieland, vocals, and patriotic selections.
