Students performing in jazz ensemble concertThe SUU Department of Music’s Jazz Ensemble will perform Adventures in “Time” on Friday, November 30, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. in the Heritage Center Theater. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for youth. Southern Utah University faculty, staff, and students are free with a valid ID card. Faculty and staff IDs are allowed one guest. Tickets can be purchased at the door the night of the concert or online at the SUU College of Performing and Visual Arts website.

Dr. Adam Lambert, Director of Bands, explains, “The concert is themed, Adventures in ‘Time.’ The pulse or ‘time’ as it is sometimes referred to, is the heartbeat of jazz. This year's Jazz Ensemble is prepared to make your heart race with their exciting energy, precision, and, performance that is right in ‘time’. This music is sure to make you want to dance in the aisle. In addition to newer, contemporary sounds, the concert program is also filled with familiar jazz classics, which will bring back ‘time’ gone by in the history of jazz.” 

Performing with the Jazz Ensemble, Dr. Krystal McCoy, who serves as Director of Choral Studies at SUU, will be a featured vocalist with the band. She will sing Frank Sinatra's classic, Fly Me to the Moon.

Kaden Smith, junior communications major, says, “Words speak to the mind, jazz speaks to the soul. Every opportunity to hear jazz should be taken. Where else can you find 20+ student musicians giving their heart to the music for the purpose of having a moment of connection with the audience. It becomes a special instance where souls can speak and be expressed and also where souls can be touched.”

Feel the music deep in your soul with the Adventures in “Time” SUU Jazz Ensemble concert on Friday, November 30, 2018. For more information about the Department of Music at SUU, please visit the SUU College of Performing and Visual Arts website.
