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.
