Under the direction of Dean McNeill, the USask Jazz Ensemble has toured western Canada, northern U.S.A. and Quebec, and has commissioned and premiered many new works for the contemporary large jazz ensemble idiom.

Michelle Grégoire’s music has been described as “ingenious,” “elegant,” “balanced” and “original with great depth and imagination.” A proud Métis artist raised in Manitoba, Grégoire has toured across Canada with her jazz quintet and her music is heard regularly on XM Radio and various jazz programs across North America.
