UConn Jazz Combo Concert

The UConn jazz combos perform this Tuesday night, Oct. 25th at 7:30 p.m. on the von der Mehden stage.

Experience the excitement of jazz being improvised “in the moment” by skilled student musicians, on a quest to find their artistic voices and make their marks. Gregg August, Earl MacDonald and John Mastroianni, directors.

All of the UConn Jazz combos will perform.

Under the guidance and direction of faculty members, students work together within assigned combos to develop proficiency in the art of jazz improvisation and small-group jazz ensemble playing. Groups are organized according to themes, where the repertoire of a specific jazz composer or genre is addressed.
