BSC Jazz Ensemble in Concert April 28

The Bluefield State College Jazz Ensemble will present its annual Spring Jazz Concert April 28, at 8 p.m., in the Basic Science Auditorium on the BSC campus. Directed for the 23rd year by William B. Caruth, Jr., the 19-piece jazz ensemble is a unique combination of area musicians dedicated to the performance of the finest arrangements, featuring the big band sound.

The concert, which is the final event in a day-long jazz festival sponsored by BSC, features performances by guest artists Jim Calabrese and Jim Williamson. Calabrese, from Statesville, NC, has played with several nationally-recognized groups, and Williamson, from Nashville, TN, has performed with such well-known performers as Boots Randolph and Reba McIntyre.

The BSC Jazz Ensemble has performed throughout the Virginias and North Carolina, including a performance at the gubernatorial inaugural ball of former Virginia Governor Gerald Baliles.

The jazz festival features performances throughout the day by area junior high and senior high school stage bands.
