Sharing the sound of jazz
Jazz Central and Jazz Lab 1 perform April 7 at Staples Family Concert Hall
Leading up to the concert, Jazz Central and Jazz Lab 1 are fine-tuning the details. Both ensembles perform challenging music that was written for professional musicians.
“It is very rewarding to witness and be a part of the success of the students,” said director Robbie Smith, who has been directing jazz ensembles at CMU for more than 19 years.
Jazz Central performs at 2 p.m., and Jazz Lab 1 performs at 5 p.m. Both performances will include music from a variety of jazz composers, and every song will feature student soloists.
