The Lovett Ellington Jazz Ensemble

Directed by Stutz Wimmer (Atlanta, GA)


The Lovett School is a small coeducational, kindergarten-twelfth grade independent school. Auditions to join the jazz ensemble are open for 9-12 graders at Lovett. In 2013, it became the first performing arts ensemble offered as an Honors class by the school. The Lovett School has placed as a finalist at Essentially Ellington four times, and this will be the school’s fifth appearance here at Swing Central Jazz.

Stutz Wimmer, the band’s Director has been with Lovett High School for over 20 years, and is also the Director of Jazz at Emory University. Wimmer is an active clinician, and has served as President of the Georgia Association of Jazz Educators Board.
