Chosen by competitive audition, the Liberace Jazztet includes both graduate and undergraduate jazz studies majors. Graduate students who are selected for the group receive graduate assistantships and full tuition waivers. Undergraduates are awarded tuition waiver scholarships. Since its inception, the group has achieved national prominence, appearing in New York and Toronto at International Association of Jazz Educators conferences and other important venues.
Their first commercial CD, On the Verge, was released in 2003. Their newest CD, Monkin' Around, is now available.
The Liberace Jazztet is funded by a generous grant from the Liberace Foundation.
