Join us in celebrating live music and improvisation with an evening of eclectic jazz performances. The talented young musicians of the Penn Jazz Ensembles will perform and improvise on music ranging from 1920's traditional jazz to new music composed and arranged by the student performers. Featuring seven different groups, the concert will have two sets, one starting at 6:00, and one starting at 7:30.
This event is free and open to the public.
The Penn Jazz Ensembles consists of small (3-6 member) jazz ensembles which meet weekly for rehearsals coached by professional Philadelphia-based jazz musicians. Repertoire is extremely varied and includes early jazz, 1950's-era straight ahead jazz, Cuban jazz, vocal jazz, jazz arrangements of current popular music, and other styles. Instrumental performance and improvisation are emphasized but vocalists are welcomed. More information.
