GLENVILLE, WV—The Glenville State College Fine Arts Department faculty and staff are preparing to unveil their newest ensemble. The GSC Jazz Combo Concert will be held on Tuesday, April 15th at 7:00 p.m. in the GSC Fine Arts Auditorium. The event will mark the first official campus performance of the group.
“This will be an exciting night featuring many young and talented musicians. The concert itself will feature a wide variety of music giving something for everybody to enjoy,” said GSC Visiting Assistant Professor of Music Jason Barr.
The jazz combo members have been preparing for their first show since forming in the fall of 2013. The ensemble is much smaller than the regular jazz band and features only a handful of musicians on the drums, guitar, bass, piano, vibraphone, trumpet, tenor and alto sax, and trombone with the addition of a singer. Styles played by the combo include jazz, bebop, latin, swing, and rock.
This concert is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Barr at Jason.Barr@glenville.edu or (304) 462-6350.
