The WT Jazz Bands will perform an outdoor concert on April 15th

CANYON, TX (KFDA) – Jazz band WT will perform an outdoor concert on April 15 at the grounds of West Texas A&M University.

WT’s Jazz Ensembles I and II will perform starting at 6:30 p.m. on April 15 on the south-facing steps of the Old Education Building on the Canyon campus.

Admission is free and families and other guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit on, said James Barger, assistant saxophone teacher and director of Jazz Ensemble II.

The public can also bring food and drink, although no alcohol is allowed on campus.

“We’re incredibly excited to get back on stage and share some great music with WT and the Canyon / Amarillo community,” said Barger. “When the schools closed their doors last spring, we were weeks away from hosting two internationally renowned jazz artists and educators for a clinic and performances with our students. Like so many other musicians and artists, we have found ways to pivot and resume our activities gradually and safely over the past year. The result is an outdoor concert that will be safe and enjoyable for everyone involved, and we look forward to welcoming everyone to our beautiful campus.

The concert will feature music by Sammy Nestico, Chick Corea, Gordon Goodwin, Pat Metheny and more.
