Students, Community Join For Jazz Concert
SALISBURY, MD---The Salisbury University Jazz Ensemble performs at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 13, in the Fulton Hall Theatre.
Directed by Dr. Jerry Tabor of SU’s Department of Music, the ensemble is comprised of SU students, as well as community musicians. The concert features both traditional and contemporary jazz, blues and Latin music, including pieces originally performed by such artists as Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, Superblue and T.S.
