Guest composer Washut to kick off 360° Thursdays concert series Feb. 7

UW-Green Bay Music is set to kick off its new concert series in a big way Feb. 7, when it features an accomplished arranger and composer in the inaugural 360° Thursdays event. Prof. Bob Washut, Director of Jazz Studies at the University of Northern Iowa, will discuss his creative process when the program begins; and the talk will be followed by a performance of his music by the UW-Green Bay Jazz Ensemble. The 360° Thursdays event is part of the University’s new branding initiative, 360° of Learning, which encourages learning and experience through multiple perspectives. Each 360° Thursdays event begins at 6:30 p.m. in Fort Howard Hall at the Weidner Center, and each is free and open to the public (though donations are appreciated).
