Performance is a central component of every student's education at The New School's School Jazz and Contemporary Music, and the Ensemble Showcases are where faculty-led student groups showcase their talent and creativity.

Charles Mingus, one of the most important composers/band leaders in jazz history, contributed much to the formation of modern jazz. The Charles Mingus Ensemble is devoted to listening, analysis, and especially performance of Mingus’ compositions. Attention is focused on capturing the experimental spirit of the Mingus Jazz Workshop.
