BYU jazz band Synthesis plans Nov. 30 concert

The popular jazz group Synthesis from Brigham Young University’s School of Music will perform Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

Tickets are available through the Fine Arts Ticket Office at (801) 422-7664 or at performances.byu.edu for $9 or $6 with BYU or student ID.

Ray Smith, director of the group, said the concert might as well be called “The Best of Synthesis” since they will perform many of the greatest tunes from their past CDs.

“We are playing one of the most dynamite programs all year,” Smith said. “The band is exceptional. It’s going to be a smokin’ concert.”

The jazz group will also perform three original student compositions and other favorites such as “Angel Eyes,” “Blues in the Night,” “Meeting of the Minds” and “Cruisin’ for a Bluesin’.”

For more information, contact Ray Smith at (801) 422-3391 or ray_smith@byu.edu.

BYU becomes first U.S. university to offer Azerbaijani 101

“There could be no better place than BYU to have the first Azerbaijani class,” said ambassador Khazar Ibrahim. “BYU’s programs are at the top of the list because of their depth––BYU teaches not only about the language, but the culture too. The cultural nuance of a people is integral in understanding their language.”
