SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Evangel University Jazz Orchestra will perform a concert of big band songs on Thursday, Nov. 10, at 7:30 p.m. in the Barnett Recital Hall.
The concert is free and open to the public.
“We’ve had some requests for older big band literature, so this semester we are doing a concert made up primarily of songs recorded before 1950,” said Joel Griffin, assistant professor of music and director of jazz studies.
