100 Anniversary Tribute to Ella Fitzgerald with guest vocalist Carmen Bradford.
The Jazz Ensemble, led by Paul Carr, is a popular ensemble for students across campus. 16-19 students are selected by audition to study myriad styles of jazz encompassing swing, Latin, fusion, bop, and the American Songbook. The band toured Europe in 1993, 1997, 2002, 2008, and 2015 with performances at Istanbul, Perugia, and in towns on the French Riviera. On previous tours the ensemble performed in Montreux, Vienné, Amsterdam, Paris, Bruges, Heidelberg, Athens, and Venice. The GCJE has opened for Ray Brown and Phil Woods and performed with world renowned soloists Paquito D'Rivera, Boston Brass, Denis DiBlasio, Lew Soloff, Graham Breedlove, and Chris Brubeck. The ensemble was honored to perform at the 2011 MENC Eastern Division Conference in Baltimore. This is the first music ensemble in the history of Gettysburg College to be afforded this opportunity.
