BYU's Jazz Legacy Dixieland Band plans concerts Oct. 17-18

"Seventy-six trombones" will make their mark during the Jazz Legacy Dixieland Band performances Friday and Saturday, Oct. 17-18, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall at Brigham Young University.

Tickets at $9 with $3 off with a BYU or student ID are available through the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 378-4322 or at www.byu.edu/hfac.

Founded and directed Steve Call, the Jazz Legacy Dixieland Band has performed throughout the United States and Japan and has presented a concert at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., representing Utah in the Millennium Stage State Days Concert Series.

Call said people are attracted to the toe-tapping music of Dixieland jazz because it is fun to play and fun to listen to.

"There is something very appealing about traditional jazz," he said. "It is a very happy, upbeat kind of music."

The band consists of Steve Call, director; George Bailey, clarinet and vocals; Jonathan Skarda, clarinet; Tyler Jensen, saxophones, clarinet and vocals; Daniel Henderson, trumpet and vocals; Alisha Ard, trombone and vocals; Kristen Bromley, banjo, guitar, and vocals; Jennie Bangerter, piano and vocals; Joe Jensen, tuba; and Tim Fellow, drums.

Special guests will include Russ Germer and Shannon Roberts on trombone, as well as 76 trombonists recruited from BYU and the local community.

A new BYU study debunks the assumption that menstrual cycles disqualify women from exercise research. Analyzing women’s exercise performance across their menstrual cycles, researchers found no variability in endurance thresholds or performance: from workout to workout, women’s performance was just as consistent as men’s.
