The Cal Jazz Choir is a 9 to 12-member ensemble dedicated to exploring the colorings of vocal jazz. Under the direction of William Garcia Ganz, CJC draws its repertoire from the traditional standards of jazz greats such as Duke Ellington, Bill Evans, Cole Porter, and Joe Garland, as well as from popular jazz groups like The Real Group, Take 6, Singers Unlimited, and The Manhattan Transfer. Performances sometimes feature the talents of local jazz combos but are generally a cappella and will almost certainly include plentiful scat solos!
The Cal Jazz Choir is one of many groups sponsored by UC Choral Ensembles
(UCCE). CJC has annual fall and spring shows, and frequently performs at
departmental parties, Chancellor receptions, and Alumni functions.
