Pushing Boundaries: Jazz Band Concert

Nov. 8-9: Pushing Boundaries/Jazz Band

Thursday and Friday, Nov. 8-9 as indicated in the songs—the Georgia College Jazz Band will be “Pushing Boundaries” at its fall concert at 7:30 p.m. in Russell Auditorium. One song, “Fables of Faubus,” was written in protest to the 1957 incident in Little Rock, when Arkansas Gov. Orval Faubus used the National Guard to block nine African-American students from entering an all-white high school. This concert also features two women jazz composers, who are successful in a field dominated by men for more than 100 years: Maria Schneider and Lauren Baba. The program features contemporary charts like Schneider’s “Bird Count” and Baba’s “144,” as well as old favorites like Irving Berlin’s “Cheek to Cheek,” Joe Primrose’s “St. James Infirmary” and Neal Hefti’s ballad “Lil Darlin.” Part-time professor Dr. Nathaniel Gworek is the guest percussionist. A $5 donation is encouraged. All proceeds benefit music scholarships or the GC Department of Music through GCSU Foundation, Inc. For more information, please email music@gcsu.edu or call 478-445-8289.
