Jazz Orchestra Concert and Reception-Denver

  • Date: Sunday, March 19, 2017
  • Time: 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
  • Location: Augustana Lutheran Church, 5000 E. Alameda Ave, Denver, Colo.

Alumni, parents, and friends are invited to enjoy one of the Colorado performances given by the Luther College Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of Juan Tony Guzmán '90.

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 musicians of the “Superband” (as director Dr. Juan Tony Guzmán calls the ensemble) are guaranteed to make any space alive with musical energy.

As one of Luther’s four touring ensembles, the Jazz Orchestra travels annually and tours abroad every four years—most recently in May/June 2016 to Brazil for a three-week, 13 performance immersion in the musical cultures of Rio de Janeiro and the northeastern states of Paraíba, Pernambuco, and Rio Grande do Norte.

Sunday, March 19, 2017
4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. 
Augustana Lutheran Church, 5000 E. Alameda Ave, Denver, Colo.
A reception in the Fellowship Hall will follow the concert.
Hosts: Vice President Emerita Ann Highum and Jerry Freund, Jen and Gregg Luther '90, Rhonda (Englert) '89 and Jeff Lawrence, Charlie Busch '82, Associate Director of Alumni Relations Kirk Johnson '82. 


We hope you make plans to join us for these special events! 

Soli Deo Gloria!
