Participation: Entrance is by audition (see audition schedules).  This ensemble is open to music students, and McGill University students from other faculties.

The McGill Chamber Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of jazz trombonist and composer Jean-Nicholas Trottier, is a ten-piece ensemble with a focus on contemporary jazz and student works.

Rehearsals are run in a workshop fashion, where creative new pieces by our students and faculty are explored and readied for performance.
