Jazz and Modern Band

Jazz band performing in the falcon hub

The Fitchburg State Jazz and Modern Band "The Fitchbyrds" is open to all students and faculty of Fitchburg State who play ANY instrument. Our focus is on providing a space where students can play together without restricting instrumentation. Working collaboratively, the ensemble chooses the music it wants to play, then creates its own arrangements which accommodate the instrumentation and abilities of the students.

The Fitchbyrds perform many times each semester, including community performances in and around Fitchburg, music area concerts, and notable campus events. Auditions may be required for rhythm section players.

The Jazz and Modern Band is conducted by Dr. Amy McGlothlin. Email: amcgloth@fitchburgstate.edu or call 978.665.3513 for more information.

Rehearsals are Monday and Wednesday from 11 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
