The performance will feature music written for big bands with an emphasis on the 1990’s. The students will perform jazz pieces styled in several types of swing, a ballad, a jazz samba, modal jazz and smooth jazz. Ron Crocker, UNK professor of music, will perform a drum solo with the band.

The performance is free and open to the public.
