On Stage with a Jazz Combo

Jazz Studies Faculty

Lionel Hampton School of Music

Sponsored by the Office of the President and Executive Vice President and the University Honors Program

Have you ever wondered what goes on inside a jazz ensemble? This presentation will put the audience on stage to observe and listen to the improvisation process that is at the heart of jazz. Faculty members from the Lionel Hampton School of Music will explain their roles in laying down a beat, providing accompaniment, and offering a personalized interpretation of the rhythms, chords and melodic line. This session is intended to prepare audiences for the 2016 Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, which begins Feb. 24.

Among the faculty members scheduled to participate are: Alan Gemberling, trombone; Dan Bukvich, percussion; Vanessa Sielert, saxophones, and Vern Sielert, trumpet and flugelhorn.
