Dr. Alan Durst, Director
Fresno State features two fine jazz bands: the Jazz Orchestra and the Jazz Ensemble, both directed by Dr. Alan Durst. Both ensembles consist of standard big band instrumentation. The groups require an audition for membership, held each semester. The jazz bands perform at many different venues during the year, including the Reno Jazz Festival and prestigious Fresno State events such as the Top Dog Gala.
