Annual Concert
Melvin N. Miles, Jr., Conductor

The Morgan State University Jazz Ensemble presents its annual concert of works reflective of the different genres of jazz.

The Ensemble, under the skillful leadership of Melvin N. Miles, Jr. will showcase works by noted composers such as Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Thad Jones, Count Basie, George Gershwin and more!


The MSU Jazz Ensemble has been a part of the Morgan State University Band Program since 1971 and Melvin N. Miles, Jr. has been the conductor since 1973. This ensemble serves the university and the community as an entertainment unit and as a tool for the student musicians to improve their improvisational, composing, arranging and conducting skills in the genre of jazz and commercial music. Many of the former members are now touring and studio musicians. Committed to high standards, this ensemble has an excellent reputation and maintains a very active performance schedule.
