About the Band

Taken from their website:

The Groningen Student Big Band, led by Kristin McGee, is a student group that began in 2013 to provide local students the opportunity to play in a high quality jazz ensemble. In the winter of 2013, local student and saxophonist Amber Krake approached Dr. Kristin McGee (Professor of Jazz and Popular Music at the University of Groningen) about starting such a group. After several rounds of auditions, the best student musicians from the University of Groningen and the Prince Claus Conservatory were chosen. They quickly began weekly rehearsals in the Spring of 2013 which led to many fine performances and musical opportunities.
