Great jazz in the University Theatre

Jazz fans have the opportunity to hear some of the best jazz tunes ever created when the University of Lethbridge Jazz Ensemble presents Time Being, Wednesday night in the University Theatre.

Great jazz by Herbie Hancock, Bob Marley, Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington and Frank Sinatra is the focus of the concert, Wednesday, beginning at 8 p.m.

"Our featured guest is drummer Tyler Hornby from Calgary," says director Dr. David Renter, a U of L alumnus. "Tyler is a versatile drummer with a great melodic sense combined with taste, control and rhythmic finesse. It's a great opportunity for our students to perform with Tyler and our audience will enjoy the experience, too."

The 20-member jazz ensemble is an auditioned group predominantly made up of music majors with a few members from other faculties.

Tickets for Time Being with the U of L Jazz Ensemble are $15 for regular admission and $10 student/senior at the U of L Box Office, 403-329-2616. A complimentary shuttle bus is available to transport concertgoers from the north parking lot to the theatre entrance.
