The North Carolina Jazz Ensemble (NCJE) was organized in 1980 by Oliver Hodge and Stanley Baird and has been active ever since. The group, originally named the Triangle Big Band, was re-named when it began performing for the North Carolina Arts Council. The Ensemble has presented educational programs for schools around the State and performed at festivals, parks and other outdoor events. This talented band of artists and educators continues performing for private groups and organizations from balls to inaugurations, presenting a diverse repertoire of music for nearly every occasion. The NCJE’s annual holiday concert at Hayti has become a favorite, bringing joy and the holiday spirit to all who attend.
