Director: Bill Mahar

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

The McGill Rhythm Section Ensembles are designed to provide rhythm section players with a high-quality performance ensemble that emphasizes reading (as compared to combo, which is more improvisational). The ensembles are under the direction of jazz trumpeter Bill Mahar.
