The Geneva College Jazz Band will present “In the Mood XIX: Big Band Music Returns,” on Saturday, April 12, 2014. This annual concert of swing music from the ’30s and ’40s will take place in the John White Chapel of Old Main at 8 p.m.
The band will perform such standards as “Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man,” “My Funny Valentine,” “In the Mood,” “Pennsylvania Polka,” “You Make Me Feel So Young” and more. In addition to instrumental solo features from within the band, the program will also include several vocal solos.
“The annual Jazz Concert has become one of the most popular events on campus each spring, providing a high energy concert that continues to entertain and attract all ages,” says Director and Music Department Chair Don Kephart. “We currently have 20 students shaping the traditional look of the early swing bands with contained brass, saxophone and rhythm sections.”
Tickets cost $8 for adults and $4 for students. Seating is limited, so those interested in attending are encouraged to reserve tickets by calling Geneva’s Music Department at 724-847-6660 or emailing Ruth Vos at firstname.lastname@example.org.
