Jay Nash, East Coast native and rock troubadour, has been blessed with the kind of excruciatingly rustic voice so rarely heard on record. Emerging into the national spotlight from the same Los Angeles music scene that gave rise to Sara Bareilles, Katy Perry, and many other current pop luminaries, Nash has shared the stage with everyone from the Counting Crows and Maroon 5 to Keb Mo and Dave Mason. He has logged more than a thousand live performances and sold more than 35,000 albums without ever having signed a conventional record label deal. He writes songs that are at once clever and down to earth. Although subdued at times, his voice articulates a quiet power that commands the attention of his listeners. Jay Nash is a "lifer." He’s a musician dedicated to the craft of songwriting and the life of the rock 'n' roll road show. His loyal fanbase was built brick by brick. See him once, and you will join them.

A night of great music by Harmony faculty Jeff Claassen and Jazz Composition faculty Ayn Inserto performed by the Ayn Inserto Jazz Orchestra as well as more intimate settings. There will be new original compositions as well as unusual arrangements of other tunes exploring new areas of their writing. Claassen will be incorporating some of the stylized techniques and sounds of Duke Ellington into his own original compositions and arrangements as he has been inspired and interested in his compositional techniques and tone colors. Inserto will be writing music in shorter formats, more focused on orchestration/instrumentation, including woodwinds, various mutes, and doublings. Both will also contribute pieces that are in their signature styles. This promises to be a night of exciting new music guaranteed to entertain. Other faculty members such as Allan Chase will also be featured in the ensemble.
