Tue Apr 16 2013

HICKORY, N.C. — The Lenoir-Rhyne University Jazz Ensemble, consisting of students and community members, will present their spring concert on Tuesday, April 30 at 7:30pm in the P.E. Monroe Auditorium.  The program will include standard and contemporary works for big band.

Directed by Patrick Brown, the LR Jazz Ensemble is at once both a lab band dedicated to furthering students’ abilities to play jazz and other popular styles, and an active performing ensemble.  The Jazz Ensemble is a reorganization of the “stage band” tradition, performing diverse styles of music including swing, bebop, blues, funk, Latin, and popular song. Membership in the Jazz Ensemble is open to all Lenoir-Rhyne University students and community members by audition.
