Thomas University Jazz Ensemble


ACTU to hold January Jazz Fest

Arts for the Community at Thomas University (ACTU) will present “January Jazz Fest” featuring The TCC Jazz Band from Tallahassee Community College under the direction of Michael Grant, an undergraduate combo jazz group from Florida State University and the Thomas University Jazz Ensemble.

“The TCC Jazz Band is really a big band with lots of horns and a rhythm section,” stated series coordinator Karl Barton. “While the other two groups represent the combo jazz approach that followed the big bands of the swing era.”

The concert is part of the Sundays at Four series and will take place at 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 17, on the theater stage at the Thomasville Center for the Arts, located at 600 E. Washington St.

“This is the second year our January Jazz concert will begin to approach a real festival featuring a few groups,” Barton continued. “We are excited that this is becoming an annual tradition and hope to see it continue to grow.”

The concert is free and open to the public with a suggested donation of $5. A reception will follow the performance. For additional information, e-mail or call 229-227-6964.
