Students in these small jazz combos have the opportunity to hone their technique and work on tight arrangements. World-renowned faculty musicians lead them through classic charts by influential writers such as Duke Ellington and Count Basie plus current compositions.
This performance will run approximately one hour and 50 minutes, and includes a 20-minute intermission.
Guests are invited to join Krannert Center in helping children stay warm this winter. Bring new or gently used coats, mittens, gloves, hats, scarves, and ear muffs for this season's clothing drive. There is a special need this year for large and extra-large coats for middle school boys. All collected items will go to the Champaign Unit 4 School District and Urbana School District 116. Donation boxes will be available in the lobby near Intermezzo cafe.
