USU Jazz Combos Concert in the Performance Hall Nov. 6

Utah State University’s Department of Music presents the Jazz Combos annual fall concert Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 7:30 p.m. in the Performance Hall on USU’s 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.”

 

Two of the combos performing are coached by USU CCA student Denson Angulo.

 

“The performance features students working on developing a vocabulary in the jazz idiom,” said Angulo. “We’ll be playing songs by famous jazz musicians Wayne Shorter, John Schofield, Paul Desmond, Dave Brubeck and more.”

 

Angulo says that 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.”

 

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.
