UViC Vocal Jazz at Arbutus Middle School

The UVic Vocal Jazz Ensemble joins the Arbutus Middle School Vocal Jazz Ensemble for a morning of music on February 4th.

The exciting music program at Arbutus Global Middle School is led by two UVic grads, Mike Mazza and Jennifer Hill (nee Smith), and features a wide variety of musical experiences for budding musicians.

For a relatively small city, Victoria has the lion's share of excellent music programs, many in the hands of UVic grads who have assumed prominent roles in music education in the province of British Columbia.
