Next 360° Thursdays to feature Gaines, Ganyard and hot, sweet jazz

Two faculty members from different academic programs will team up for the next event in the 360° Thursdays lecture-concert series, a jazz-influenced program taking place Feb. 27 in the Weidner Center’s Fort Howard Hall. Associate Profs. Adam Gaines, Music, and Clifton Ganyard, Humanistic Studies (History), along with their band of UW-Green Bay faculty members and others, will present “Hot and Sweet Dance Orchestras Around the World” beginning at 6:30 p.m. It’s not the first time Gaines and Ganyard have collaborated to share their love of jazz — they team-taught the musical history course “The Jazz Age” during spring semester 2013 (see video). Each 360° Thursdays performance takes place at 6:30 p.m. in Fort Howard Hall. Admission is free but donations are appreciated. Read more.
