SWOSU Jazz Ensembles Plan March 13 Concert

Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s jazz ensembles will be featured in concert on Thursday, March 13, on the Weatherford campus.

The 7 p.m. concert in the Fine Arts Center will feature Jazz Ensemble A, Jazz Ensemble B, and a group comprised of area high school and SWOSU students. Also, a group from the SWOSU Singers will perform String of Pearls and Early Autumn with Jazz A. The groups have been preparing for about six weeks for this performance.

A few of the composers to be featured include Gordon Goodwin, Thad Jones and Dan Haerle.

“It’s always fun to play music of Gordon Goodwin. His ‘Big Phat Band’ is one of the world’s most recognized groups and their music is pretty tough,” said Dr. Richard Tirk of the SWOSU Music Department.

The concert is free and open to the public.
