Swing your way down to Suds for some Beloit College jazz

November 18, 2010



Hey there, hep cats. 

The Beloit College Jazz Ensemble will be playing Suds O'Hanahans at 6 p.m. tonight (Friday); think of it as a preview to Monday nights double-billing with the Beloit College Wind Ensemble, back up the hill at campus.

On Monday, Nov. 22, 2010, at 7:30 p.m., in Eaton Chapel, the Wind Ensemble, directed by Glenn Wilfong, will open another concert; the band is a large ensemble composed of wind, brass and percussion instruments played by students, faculty, staff and musicians from surrounding communities.

The Jazz Ensemble, directed by John Meyers, will follow that night with a selection of big band jazz, blues and swing. Selections include classics such as “Pick Up the Pieces” by Average White Band, featuring senior Greta Keister on tenor sax and freshman Christopher Bunkers on drums, and  ”Sidewinder” by Lee Morgan, featuring Glenn Wilfong on trumpet and senior James Jobb on drums.
