SC Percussion and Jazz Concerts Scheduled

The Southwestern College Percussion Ensemble and the SC Jazz Band and Jazz Combo will present concerts in May.

The SC Percussion Ensemble will present their spring concert on Tuesday, May 1 at 7 p.m., in Messenger Recital Hall, located in the Darbeth Fine Arts Center.  

“The first half of the program will feature the work ‘Process,’ a piece that exemplifies the differences in processing for both neuroatypical and neurotypical persons,” says Jeremy Kirk, director of bands and percussion at Southwestern College. “The second half of the program will feature an island vibe with the Percussion Pops Ensemble performing tunes of Jimmy Buffett, Jimmy Cliff, and many more.”  

The SC Jazz Band and Jazz Combo will present “An Evening of Jazz” on Thursday, May 3 at 7 p.m., in the Richardson Performing Arts Center located on the main level of the Christy Administration Building. 

According to Kirk, the concert will feature jazz standards from Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, and more, along with modern funk charts.  

“Both concerts will feature a wide variety of styles,” Kirk says. “From totalism to tropical and cool jazz to funk, there is something for everyone.”  

There is no admission charge for both concerts and the community is encouraged to attend.
