Alumni, parents and friends of Luther College are invited to spend an evening with the Luther College Jazz Orchestra, conducted by
Dr. Juan Tony Guzmán.
Thursday, April 10
Lutheran Church of the Atonement
909 E Main Street, Barrington, IL 60010
Concert ~ 7:15 p.m.
Under the direction of Juan Tony Guzmán '90, the Luther College Jazz Orchestra brings a night of jazz to Barrington as part of its Spring 2014 tour. The band will present a musically diverse evening of Latin, swing, and special selections from its new album "Aquarela." New faculty jazz trumpeter Jon Ailabouni '10 will be featured alongside several student soloists.
Recognized as one of the outstanding liberal arts college jazz ensembles in the Upper Midwest, the Jazz Orchestra seamlessly bridges the many styles of the genre. Whether they're swinging to the tunes of Duke Ellington and Count Basie, making a Brazilian samba come alive or simply laying down a heavy funk groove, the twenty musicians of the "Superband" (as director Dr. Juan Tony Guzmán calls the ensemble) are guaranteed to make any space alive with musical energy.
We hope you will join Dr. Guzmán and the Jazz Orchestra
students for this special event.
