|UND Jazz Ensemble to perform concert Nov. 13|
The 12:00 Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Ronnie Ingle, will perform a concert at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 13, at the Memorial Union Ballroom. The concert will feature classic works by Count Basie, Duke Ellington, and Oliver Nelson, as well as contemporary compositions, such as Gordon Goodwin’s "Huntin’ Wabbits," Sade Adu’s "Smooth Operator," and Mel Torme’s "The Christmas Song."
Featured will be Anne Christopherson, vocals; Mike Blake, vibraphone; and Ronnie Ingle, trumpet. In addition, the 1:00 Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Robert Brooks, will perform “A Tribute to Maynard Ferguson,” the highly popular and endearing bandleader who recently died at age 78. The program will feature some of the most popular and memorable compositions, including "Give It One," "Fireshaker," "I Can’t Get Started," "Sister Sadie," and his wildly popular big band version of the Beatles hit "Hey Jude." This will be an entertaining, unique, and memorable night of big band jazz.
Tickets are available at the door. Cost is $6 for general admission, $3 for students and seniors, and $12 for families (two adults and two children).
