A little big band opens for a big big band in this annual spring concert. This concert features two large ensembles: The Chord Scale Madness 10-piece followed by Lin Biviano's big band The Urban Outreach Orchestra. This concert is an annual event featuring talented student arrangers and composers.

The repertoire, written for a 10-piece band, is chosen from music that has passed a screening process. Each student is then offered the opportunity to work with professor Jackson Schultz to edit and fine-tune his or her music for performance. From that group of writers, Schultz, along with input from the band, chooses the pieces to be performed.
