Jazz at the G concert series continues today

“Jazz at the G,” a series of jazz concerts on Georgia Regents University’s Summerville Campus, continues on Tuesday, Nov. 10, at the Maxwell Theatre. This time, it’s all about the students, as the program features performances by The GRU Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Dr. Rob Foster.

The repertoire will include a variety of styles and genres — from old-time classics, to straight-ahead Basie-style swing, as well as some burning Latin jazz and funky electric bass-infused numbers.

“I tried to cover a wide range of styles and sounds so that there are one or two things in the program that people like,” Foster said. “I like to feature different student solos.”

Admission to the “Jazz at the G” concert is $5 for the general public and free for GRU students, faculty and staff with a valid JAGCard. Tickets are available at the Maxwell Theatre Box Office, and on line at gru.edu/maxwelltheatre.

Additional “Jazz at the G” concerts are scheduled through spring 2016 at both the D. Douglas Barnard Jr. Amphitheatre and Maxwell Theatre.

“We are excited to bring a second season of  ‘Jazz at the G’ to fans of this  truly American art form on GRU’s Summerville Campus.”, GPB-Augusta Station Manager Drew Dawson said.  “Our goal is to make the campus a welcoming destination for local jazz aficionados while providing expanded opportunities for GRU music students to showcase their talents and share the stage with local, regional and nationally known jazz greats.”

There is no charge to park on GRU’s Summerville Campus for this event.  The campus is designated as a tobacco-free and alcohol-free zone.
