BC Summer Jazz Band to host free concert

The Brazosport College Summer Jazz Band will perform a summer jazz concert at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 3 at The Clarion at Brazosport College.

The concert is free of charge and is hosted by the Brazosport College Department of Music.

Some of the selections to be performed include Duke Ellington’s classic from the Great American Songbook,
I’m Beginning to See the Light; Maynard Ferguson’s fiery Latin anthem, Coconut Champagne; Earth, Wind and Fire’s R&B hit Getaway; Miles Davis’ cool jazz rendition of Bye, Bye Blackbird; Thelonius Monk’s iconic bebop blues Straight No Chaser and Charles Mingus’ raucous gospel shout Better Get Hit in Your Soul.

“Come kick-off the Fourth of July holiday with some of America’s classical music – jazz,” said director Richard Birk. “We’ll be playing everything from big band standards to brand new selections for contemporary jazz ensemble. There will be a little something for everybody.”

For more information about the July 3 Summer Jazz Concert, call 979.230.3658.
