When all the trick-or-treaters are gone and the porch light is finally turned off, Fresno State’s acclaimed Jazz Band “A” offers one last treat with its annual ”Jazz-O-Ween” concert at 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31.
The best part? Come in costume, just like the student musicians will when they present their favorite spooky tunes at the Concert Hall of the Music Building.
The 36-member jazz orchestra/ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Alan Durst, will perform 12 selections including Duke Ellington’s “In A Sentimental Mood,” Herbie Hancock’s “Eye of The Hurricane” and Don Menza ‘s “Groovin’ Ha.”
The Fresno State Jazz Band “A” has earned first-place awards at the Reno Jazz Festival and the Pacific Coast Collegiate Jazz Festival. The group has performed in Europe and Japan, as well as festivals throughout the United States, including the National Collegiate Jazz Festival and the Kent-Meridian Festival at the Seattle Opera House.
For “Jazz-O-Ween,” general admission is $7; $6 for university employees; $5 for students and seniors.
