HAMMOND – Jazz lovers will have music to their ears Wednesday, March 31, at 7:30 p.m. as Southeastern Louisiana University’s Jazz Ensemble One showcases its spring concert at the Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts in downtown Hammond.
Led by Glen Hemberger, Southeastern’s director of bands, the concert will feature several classic jazz charts by leading composers and arrangers from the past and today including “Tiger of San Pedro” by John LaBarbera, “Send in the Clowns” by Stephen Sondheim, “Chickenscratch” by Les Hooper and “Wind Machine” by Sammy Nestico.
Senior music major Marcy Mayeux will also perform the Benny Golson classic “I Remember Clifford” in flugelhorn. Having recently performed with legendary blues saxophonist Lou Marini, the jazz ensemble will round out the program with “Shotgun Blues” and “Country,” both written by the famous musician.
“Jazz Ensemble One is comprised of some of the finest jazz musicians on the north shore and our concerts are always highly attended,” Hemberger said. “We look forward to another exciting performance.”
