The St. Bonaventure jazz band will perform in concert at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 22. The concert, which is free and open to the public, will take place in the Rigas Family Theater of the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts.
Dr. Leslie Sabina, the band’s director, said the concert will feature contemporary jazz pieces written by college professors of music. These pieces lack fame, but according to Sabina, “in order to keep the compositional material going for writers, you have to play their stuff. You have to promote what is out there.”
“Students see all their semester’s work appear before them; it’s an opportunity to demonstrate what they’re capable of in terms of music,” Sabina said.
In addition to directing the band, Sabina will also join the ensemble, playing bass.
