Let the 4 bring jazz music to campus

The annual Jazz on the Green concert will take place on Wednesday, May 4 at 8 p.m., with a rainy location of Auditorium Krehbiel at the Luyken Fine Arts Center.

The forecast at this point indicates a chance of rain, but listeners should bring chairs or blankets to sit on the Green in the middle of campus, just in case.

Please note the location of Krehbiel Auditorium, rather than Memorial Hall, which some advertisements have erroneously listed.

The concert is free and open to the public, with a voluntary offering taken to support the study and performance of jazz at Bethel.

Joel Boettger leads jazz groups at Bethel, which are currently Jazz Combo and Jazz Ensemble I.

Bethel is a four-year liberal arts college founded in 1887 and is the oldest Mennonite college in North America. Known for its academic excellence, Bethel ranks 15th in the Washington Monthly list of “Best Bachelor’s Colleges” and #31 in US News and World Report, Best Regional Colleges in the Midwest, both for 2021-22. Bethel was the only college or university in Kansas selected for the 2021 American Association of Colleges & Universities Institute on Truthfulness, Racial Healing and Transformation, and was named the TRHT Campus Center.
