BYU's Synthesis jazz ensemble to premiere new work April 11

"Verloren (Lost)” by faculty artist Steve Lindeman

Brigham Young University's top jazz ensemble, Synthesis, directed by Ray Smith, will give a concert at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall in the Harris Fine Arts Center, Wednesday, April 11. The concert will premiere a new piece, "Verloren (Lost)," written by faculty artist Steve Lindeman.

Tickets at $9 or $6 with a student or BYU ID are available in the Fine Arts Ticket Office, by calling (801) 422-7664, or by visiting performances.byu.edu.

Written originally for the BYU faculty jazz quintet Q'd Up and now scored for big band for the first time, “Verloren” is a 15-minute work which includes a slow waltz section, followed by a cha cha and concludes with a mambo. The piece features two auxiliary percussion players on various types of Latin percussion instruments, including guiro, timables, congas and shaker.

Lindeman teaches theory and analysis, jazz studies and piano in the BYU School of Music. He has a varied background, with a bachelor's degree in jazz studies from Indiana University, a master's degree in music theory from Queens College, CUNY, and a Ph.D. in theory and history from Rutgers University. He performs with Q'd up, the BYU School of Music faculty quintet, and as a freelancer in the Salt Lake City area.
