Next 360° Thursdays will welcome alum, his jazz trio
A UW-Green Bay alumnus and his jazz trio will take the stage for the next 360° Thursdays lecture-concert event, coming up Nov. 13 in the Weidner Center’s Fort Howard Hall. The RDG Trio consists of alum Ryan Frane ’96 (piano), director of Jazz Studies at the University of Minnesota-Duluth; Greg Garrison (double bass), noted performer and recording artist; and David Schmalenberger (percussion), a faculty member at McNally Smith College of Music in St. Paul, Minn. The group will perform jazz that is highly improvisatory, taking the audience through the process by talking about the music before performing it and projecting the “lead sheets” for the audience to see as they perform. Each 360° Thursdays performance takes place at 6:30 p.m. in Fort Howard Hall at the Weidner. Concerts are free but a $5 suggested donation is appreciated. Read more.
