NIU Jazz Ensemble to Appear at Noted Venues
The NIU Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of professor Ronald Carter, will perform at the renowned Jazz Showcase in Chicago on December 16, 2009, with shows at 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.. The following day the group appears on the program of the world's largest music educators' convention, the MidWest Clinic. All NIU jazz faculty members will appear as guests during the performances, and the December 16 program will begin with special guests the Warren Township High School Band (who are appearing at the Midwest Clinic as well).
The December 16 performance will be a CD Release Party for both the NIU Jazz Ensemble as well as NIU's Liberace Jazztet, who are just back from a successful tour of Colombia.
If you'll be at the Midwest Clinic, please make plans to attend the NIU performances!
