Free jazz concert opens fall season

Plenty of old favorites will be sweetening the air next week as Pittsburg State University hosts the first free jazz concert of the season.

The PSU Jazz Ensemble One, Jazz Lab, and the Jazz Choir will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 8, at the Crimson and Gold Ballroom in the Overman Student Center. The program will feature jazz classics such as “Moonlight Serenade” and numbers from the Buddy Rich and Stan Kenton bands. The groups will also perform contemporary arrangements by Pat Methany and the Jazz Messengers, as well as a spin-off of “I’ve Got You Under My Skin.” The performance will conclude with the world premier of Boston composer Brian Lewis, whose work “Delaware Park North” was commissioned by the PSU Jazz program.

For more information on the concert, contact Bob Kehle in the PSU Department of Music at 620-235-4474.
