The ensemble is comprised of SCC music students who perform works from the libraries of the classic big bands, as well as contemporary arrangements and student compositions.

The ensemble records, tours and performs frequently throughout the Northwest. The Jazz Band has at least one concert per quarter. This quarter they are scheduled to perform at Tula's today, Tuesday, November 25, 2014 as the culminating event of the quarter. There are approximately 22 students involved in the concert. 

The pH Factor Big Band was formed in January of 2008 and was formerly known as the Musicworks Jazz Orchestra. Paul Harshman is the musical director and leads the group. His focus on exciting and challenging repertoire has drawn a highly talented ensemble of musicians that enjoy performing great big band compositions at the highest level. The players are some of the finest in the area and the band has a nice mixture of established and younger musicians that gives the group great chemistry. 

Together, the band strives to entertain the audience and itself by exploring a wide range of music from composers and arrangers such as Bill Holman, Fred Sturm, Maria Schneider, Astor Piazzolla, Peter Herbolzheimer, Chico O'Farrill, Jim McNeely, Tommy Newsom, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Carter and Stan Kenton.
