Created almost three decades ago at Boston College, BC bOp! includes a 20 piece band plus vocalists. This award winning ensemble performs an extensive repertoire of instrumental and vocal jazz music from the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s – all designed to appeal to a variety of musical tastes. It has consistently placed among the top ten college instrumental vocal ensembles in national competitions. Competitive auditions of instrumentalists and vocal performers are held each academic year in September to determine who is qualified to become a member of this talented group.
BC bOp!’s musicians have performed and captivated fans at Carnegie Hall, Jazzfest in Orlando, FL, the Reno, Nevada and Lionel Hampton Jazz Festivals. In addition, they have performed internationally at resorts in Cancun, the Bahamas, and Jamaica.
