UMaine Jazz Ensemble in Concert
March 22 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Students and faculty from the University of Maine at Orono’s School of Performing Arts will visit Eastport on March 22 to work with local students and give a concert. During the day, UMaine jazz faculty, Dan Barrett, Mark Tipton, and David Wells, along with a student jazz combo, will give a combination presentation/performance at EAC for instrumental students from Calais High School, Washington Academy and Shead High School.
At 6:30 pm, the UMaine Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Jack Burt, will present a “journey” through the different historical styles of jazz band music: early swing, dance music, cool jazz, bop and more modern styles.
