Video looks at education, artists behind Jazz Fest XLIII

UW-Green Bay Music is gearing up for one of its most enduring traditions Saturday, Feb. 9, hosting Jazz Fest XLIII on campus. This annual event features master classes and clinic sessions for middle- and high-school bands, two of which are selected to perform in a culminating concert at 4 p.m. in the Weidner Center’s Cofrin Family Hall. They’ll be joined by UW-Green Bay’s Jazz and Vocal Jazz ensembles, as well as guest artist Bobby Shew (described as one of the great trumpet players of our time) and guest arranger Prof. Bob Washut of the University of Northern Iowa. Our preview video has all the details.
