Contemporary Repertory Ensemble
Dan Haerle formed The Zebras in 1980 and directed it until Spring 2002 to give keyboard players a special opportunity to work with electronic instruments. The group has toured extensively, including a performance at the 2002 IAJE convention in Long Beach, CA.
Now directed by graduate teaching fellows, the Zebras are a contemporary repertory ensemble. In spring 2003 the Zebras performed the music of Weather Report; in fall 2003, Steely Dan; in spring 2004, Herbie Hancock; in Fall 2004, Stevie Wonder; in Spring 2005, new compositions by students.
