Jazz Band to Perform Spring Concert

The Westmont Jazz Band offers its annual spring concert 8 p.m. April 16 in Deane Chapel on Westmont’s lower campus. Admission is free and the concert is open to the public.

Three six-piece combo groups and a big band will perform songs from such jazz greats as Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis and John Coltrane.

“The Jazz Band is at its peak here at Westmont,” band Director Ron McCarley said. “I was a student here. Playing in the band the last time, we were called the best in school history. But this group is more mature than ever. This will be a wonderful evening of music by some very talented student musicians.”
