Saint Joseph's College Jazz Fall Show to Evoke Legends of the Genre
Rensselaer, Ind. - The Saint Joseph's College Department of Music will present its annual Jazz Fall Show on Sunday, November 13 at 4:00 pm CST in the Evans Arts and Science Building Theatre on the SJC campus. Admission is free to all.
SJC Assistant Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities Kelly Ford oversees the Vocal Jazz Ensemble, which will perform such jazz classics as "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" and "Love, You Didn't Do Right by Me."
"This is a terrific group of singers, and we have a blast putting together music that everyone can enjoy," said Ford. "This concert will feature every person in the Vocal Jazz Ensemble on a solo at one time or another. It's exciting to see such enthusiasm and excitement about performing vocal jazz."
The Jazz Band, directed by Assistant Professor of Music Dr. Paul Geraci, will perform works by several jazz legends, such as Miles Davis and Duke Ellington. "When I Fall in Love," "C Jam Blues," and "The Shadow of Your Smile" are just a few of the pieces that will be performed. Improvisational solos will also be featured prominently.
"This promises to be a very entertaining concert," said Geraci. "We've challenged the band this year by incorporating some difficult pieces and extremely fast tunes. I am very excited for the show and can't wait to hear everyone in action."
