Faculty member Bertram Lehmann unites with musical friends for an evening of contemporary Brazilian music and jazz. Inspired by the particular elegiac lyricism of artists hailing from the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, the concert will include music by Milton Nascimento, Toninho Horta, and other Brazilian and American composers whose musical language is similarly harmonically lush and deeply melodic. Various configurations ranging from a trio to larger, woodwind-based ensembles will be featured. The performance will include special guest vocalist Annette Philip and piccolo-bassist Ebinho Cardoso.

Join Randy Felts and friends for an evening of original music in a Latin jazz style with a few arrangements of standards included. The music will feature evocative musical textures from the synthophone (electronic saxophone) and touches of rhythm and blues blended into the Latin undercurrent.
