Please join us for a great night of big band jazz featuring Benny Carter’s Kansas City Suite!
Written in 1960 for the Count Basie Orchestra, the ten- movement “Kansas City Suite” pays tribute to clubs that were around in the 1930′s when Basie would have been a resident.
The costume theme this year is WIZARD of OZ. There will be prizes for most outstanding costumes!
We are proud to present Nicole Chamberlin in her vocal debut with the IWU Jazz Ensemble.
Also we would like to welcome two MONSTER tenor saxophonists who will be performing with us:
Dr. Dick Kelley and Dr. Jonathan Beckett!
