|Saint Mary's jazz students|
Two public student performances—a jazz concert and a choir and band performance—highlight Saint Mary’s upcoming Family Weekend.
• The Jazz Ensemble and Jazz Combo One launch another great season 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3, in Figliulo Recital Hall, under the direction of A. Eric Heukeshoven. From familiar tunes by Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Keith Jarrett, and others, to contemporary compositions, the Jazz Ensemble’s season opener offers music for everyone. Jazz styles from the blues, jazz-rock, samba, and swing all come together to create a dynamic evening of variety. Jazz Combo One, also known as “Easy Company” this semester, will perform a tribute to jazz great Thelonius Monk with four of his most challenging original compositions. Seating is limited.
Tickets to both performances are $10 for adults, $5 for students and seniors, and are available at the Saint Mary’s Box Office, Ext. 1715, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays or online at www.pagetheatre.org/events. Tickets are also available at the door.
