The University of Southern Indiana Jazz Ensemble will perform at 7 p.m. Sunday, December 2 at the USI Performance Center on the USI campus alongside some of the region’s finest jazz musicians. The event is sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts and free and open to the public, USI employees, and students. No ticket necessary.
The night will be led by Tom Drury, instructor in music, and local vocalist Gina Moore featuring traditional and modern jazz by Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, as well as jazz pieces from Drury’s own professional ensemble, the Tom Drury Quartet.
The USI Jazz Ensemble was created in 2001 to represent the University through outstanding performances of jazz and contemporary instrumental music. This group has provided music to specific venues on campus and continues to offer students from several areas of study the opportunity to develop their performance skills. Future plans for the ensemble include recordings and performances throughout the University community and the Tri-state area.
