SWOSU Jazz Concert Planned Sunday

The final jazz concert of the 2018-19 academic year is this Sunday, April 14, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

The concert begins at 3 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center and will feature Jazz Ensemble A and B in a wide variety of works including Duke Ellington/Billy Strayhorn’s famous, Take the A Train. Admission is free, and the public is invited.

Two seniors will be featured as soloists—saxophonist Noah Camp of Altus and trumpeter David Toelle of Kremlin.  Camp will play a newer piece called, One for the Duke, by Brisker while Toelle will perform an old favorite, “I remember Clifford,” arranged by trumpeter Mike Vax. 

Dr. Richard Tirk said the concert will also feature a funk movement of a violin concerto by composer Evan Solot.  Graduate student April Fu will be the soloist on the original tune.
