Spring Jazz Combos Will Cure Your Winter Blues USU Students in Spring Concert March 19
LOGAN — Utah State University’s Department of Music presents the Jazz Combos annual spring concert Wednesday, March 19, at 7:30 p.m. in the Performance Hall on the USU Logan campus.
“This concert presents a great opportunity for students and audience members to interact,” said Jon Gudmunson, director of jazz studies in the Caine College of the Arts (CCA). “The students are able to learn firsthand what music the audience enjoys.”
Denson Angulo, USU CCA student, is coaching a combo called Mad Brittney and the Guy Tones. Angulo said the audience will hear guitar, keyboards, saxophones, bass and drums in a unique setting that is not common to popular mainstream music today.
“Much of the music that will be heard is improvised on the spot so no two performances will ever be the same,” said Angulo. “The spontaneous construction of the music unfolds live and fresh before the audience’s eyes and ears.”
Other combos playing in the performance are Mickey D and the Fat Fats, Muck Duck and the Caine Jazz Combo. The combos will play music from famous jazz musicians that include Duke Jordan, Chick Corea and Sunny Rollins.
Tickets are $10 adults, $8 youth and seniors, $5 USU faculty and staff and free for USU students with ID. For more information, visit the CCA Box Office in room 139-B of the Chase Fine Arts Center, call 435-797-8022 or see the college’s Production Services website (arts.usu.edu).
