Jingle Bell Jazz at the Station @ WSU (Ogden: Dec 8)

Cancelled Jazz Concert Rescheduled: Jingle Bell Jazz at the Station

Who: Weber State University Department of Performing Arts
What: Jingle Bell Jazz at the Station with the WSU Jazz Ensemble
When Wednesday, 8 December, 7:00 pm
Where: Grand Lobby, Ogden's Union Station, 2501 Wall Avenue
Cost: Free - All-ages welcome!

Due to the closing of WSU on Tuesday because of a blizzard warning, the November 23rd concert by the WSU Jazz Ensemble was cancelled. It has been rescheduled as part of the Jazz at the Station programming, Wednesday, December 8th.

In addition to holiday tunes, this concert will feature the music of the Big Band era. Some of the pieces will feature vocalist Sarah Marshall. Also featured on the concert will be the WSU Jazz Combo.

No music is more evocative of a period of American History than the Big Band sound. The remarkable thing is how it still continues to appeal to audiences of all ages. Expect to hear music by Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Stan Kenton, Duke Ellington and more, played with the youthful enthusiasm of our fantastic WSU Jazz Ensemble.

Jazz at the Station provides an all-ages venue for jazz fans and students. Well behaved children are welcome to attend as long as they do not disturb the performers or members of the audience.
