Jazz Ensemble to Give Big Band Twist to Traditional Tunes
“Jazz – Where You Least Expect It!” will be the theme for this spring’s University of Findlay Jazz Ensemble concert.
Scheduled for Sunday, March 18 at 3 p.m. in Winebrenner Theological Seminary’s TLB Auditorium, the event will be free and open to the public, but tickets will be required through the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts’ box office at marathoncenterarts.org or by calling 419-423-2787.
The concert will be directed by Jack Taylor, professor of music, and will feature a variety of modern and traditional arrangements for big band.

These selections will be mixed with more traditional selections from Duke Ellington, Woody Herman and other big bands.
