BYU Jazz Ensemble to perform Oct. 28

Brigham Young University’s Jazz Ensemble will present a variety of jazz tunes Tuesday, Oct. 28, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

Tickets are $6 and can be purchased at the Fine Arts Ticket Office by calling (801) 422-4322 or by visiting byuarts.com.

The evening will feature a number of special guests, including members of Vocal Point, BYU's vocal jazz ensemble.

“Amidst the number of cameo appearances, there are rumors of a Sarah Palin appearance and a very famous Himalayan guru,” said director Mark Ammons. “The Jazz Ensemble concert is more than a concert — it is an event with lots of surprises.”

The 18-members student jazz band will perform “What is Hip” by Tower of Power, “Can’t Buy Me Love” by Michael Buble and “Fantasy” and “Shining Star” by Michael Buble.

The program will also feature straight jazz tunes, including “The Unhumdrum,” an original composition by BYU faculty member Lyle Durland.

For more information, contact Mark Ammons at (801) 422-4824.
