The jazz courses and ensembles page gives descriptions of jazz studies courses at PLU and we also have an FAQ section. Check out the new PLU Northwest Honor Band page for the latest info. We can also be found on Facebook. Click on the icon below to go to the “Jazz Studies at Pacific Lutheran University” page and become a fan.
