The Clark College Jazz Band under the direction of Dr. Doug Harris presents their Spring Concert on Sunday, June 5, 7:30 pm in the Gaiser Student Center, Clark College Campus. Admission to the performance free and open to the public. Donations to the Clark College Music Department are welcome at the door.
“This is going to be a special concert for a number of reasons,” says Dr. Harris. “We will be performing a world premiere of a work by one of our own students, Chris Ramirez. His piece, Con Todas Las Estrellas (All the Stars) is challenging and exciting for the band and will introduce our audience to some new sounds. We will also feature music from our guest artist, Michele Fernandez-Denlinger. Michele is becoming one of the prominent names in big band composing in authentic Cuban styles, and her works are being performed in major venues around the country. In addition, there will be some Count Basie and other great swing composers represented in the program. It will be a fantastic close to our year.”
