Wednesday UB Recital: Third-year Jazz Improvisation and more!
Wednesday, February 24, 2016
12:00 to 13:00
<p>It’s time once again to put on your music ears and come down to the Auditorium.This Wednesday's music recital will open with a Chopin piano work performed by one of our gifted graduating students – <em><strong>Christopher Gaudreault</strong></em>.</p>
<p>The remainder of the concert will feature the department's third-year jazz-improvisation combo. It is the third of four free recitals by the 2015-2016 students in the Three-year Professional Music and Song Techniques program. This year's group has, as usual, been hard at work, rehearsing day and night under the efficient and inspiring leadership of their directors, <em><strong>Nick Di Tomaso</strong></em> and <strong><em>Dave Watts</em></strong>. These talented musicians and singers will perform a variety of songs and instrumentals which will include songs by artists such as Lady Gaga and Amy Winehouse, as well as standards and classic jazz compositions. The gorgeous ballad "You Must Believe in Spring" will be performed…how appropriate. It doesn’t feel like it, but the fact is, Spring is now less than a month away!</p>
<p>So why not take a break on Wednesday (it is, after all, a universal break, and that means you!) and join us for a full hour of free live vibrant music? It’s a great way to break up your workday!</p>
