Hey all! Music Library blogger numero uno here, excited to tell you about a great opportunity to get down with some swingin’ tunes right here on campus, this very weekend!
That’s right, this semester’s AU Jazz Orchestra concert is happening this Friday night, November 15th! Billed this semester as “Jazz Next Door,” the concert marks the culmination of AU professor Josh Bayer’s semester with his jazz orchestra course. This year, the band will be playing through not one, not two but ELEVEN charts. This includes an original arrangement by Prof. Bayer, as well as one by AU senior (and saxophonist) David Komorowski. I’ve heard them, and they’re great.
Also on the bill are the Shepherd University Jazz Big Band, who will be playing five tunes including (ooo la la) an arrangement of Radiohead’s “Kid A.” Definitely excited for that one!
So come on over for a great night of swinging chops! The event begins at 8 PM in the Abramson Family Recital hall in Katzen. Tickets are $5 for students and senior citizens, and $10 for everyone else. Here’s the event page:
