The Jazz Monarchs afford students at Methodist University the opportunity to perform a variety of jazz and contemporary styles.

While primarily designed for saxophone, trombone, trumpet, and rhythm (piano, bass, guitar, and percussion), any students wishing to perform in this ensemble should contact the Director for part availability. The Jazz Monarchs perform several times throughout the fall and spring semesters, both on campus and off.
