Pacific University's Music Department presents Jazz Nite
Pacific University's Music Department presents its spring Jazz Nite, featuring the University Jazz Band, Saxophone Quartet and Jazz Improvisers, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 21 in the Taylor-Meade Performing Arts Center (2014 Cedar Street, Forest Grove).
The concert will feature three distinct segments. The Jazz Band will commence the evening with arrangements from the Big Band Era of the 1930s and '40s, including Glenn Miller's "In the Mood," Ellington's "Take the 'A' Train" and Frank Sinatra's "The Lady is a Tramp."
Following appearances by the sax ensemble and Jazz Improvisers, the Jazz Band will return with guest artist, saxophonist John Nastos, to perform more modern arrangements, such as funk tune “Critical Mass,” Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five,” saxophone feature “Noodlin’,” and “Wind Machine” as recorded by Count Basie.
"Jazz Nite is traditionally an exciting event and this year is no exception," Pacific Director of Bands Dr. Michael Burch-Pesses said.
General admission is $7. Senior citizens 65 and greater, and Pacific students, faculty and staff are admitted for $5.
Tickets may be purchased on site or in advance by calling (503) 352-2918.
