Winter Concert: November 16 & 17

The month of November always means the beginning of a hectic two months of holiday madness. We believe that jazz fans will find this concert a brief reprieve from such things and enjoy the music. If this will be the only live music you can witness during this season, then rest assured that it will be some of the best of the year.

The closing concert for the fall semester includes something special for everyone. Our big bands will be playing old favorites. new arrangements on old standards and some completely new compositions altogether. In addition to this, the program will feature some select combo features playing a Charlie Parker classic and a new work by student composer, Alex Winkler.

We are happy to be able to perform throughout the greater Houston area this concert season. The Jazz Orchestra will perform this concert again on November 17 at Spring High School in conjunction with the Spring High School Jazz Band under the direction of J.D. Guzman.
