Jazz at Winona State University

Jazz is an inclusive art form that opens doors for creativity in a variety of disciplines. As one of the few truly American artistic traditions, jazz transcends boundaries of culture, race and economics to form a bond of commonality with participants as well as enthusiasts. WSU seeks to provide an outlet for jazz musicians of all levels to experience the art of improvisation. This arts process expands students’ ability to adapt to circumstances in all walks of life.
