The Division of Jazz Studies has many opportunities to perform with on- and off-campus
ensembles. This includes the One O'Clock Lab Band, which has earned six Grammy Award
nominations and toured Europe, Japan, Thailand and Australia. We also sponsor the
acclaimed Jazz Singers.
Our faculty members are dedicated teachers and nationally and internationally known
performers who have performed with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Kansas City Symphony,
Minnesota Opera Orchestra, Dallas Opera Orchestra and many others.
We're one of the nation's most comprehensive music colleges and offer opportunities
to meet some of the world's top music scholars and artists through specialized lectures

Orchestra, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Dallas Opera Orchestra and symphony orchestras
in Irving, Plano and Richardson.
Our facilities include the Murchison Performing Arts Center, which houses the Winspear
Performance Hall and the Lyric Theater. Both performance halls, as well as the center's
large rehearsal space, have state-of-the-art acoustics.
