Come for a great night of jazz as Trinity Western University’s School of the Arts, Media and Culture celebrates graduating jazz combo members. On April 10, two Jazz Combos will perform jazz in a variety of styles, including pieces from Duke Ellington to Wayne Shorter, Stevie Wonder to student Tyler Dumoulin. 

“They’re dynamic, entertaining performers,” says SAMC Music professor Jeff Warren, who directs the Jazz Combo.  “Hearing these musicians play is more than an opportunity to hear great tunes, you get to watch them improvise and create new music on the spot.”

The senior jazz combo is primarily made up of graduating senior students who have played together for the past four years. "It is exciting to see how far they have developed over the years," Warren explains, "Now they bring down the house every time they play!" The junior jazz combo is also sure to impress!

Presented as part of the university’s 4th Annual Festival of the Arts, Media and Culture, March 12 – April 15.  For information on this and upcoming events, visit www.twu.ca/samc.
