Jazz I Concert
November 16 @ 7:30 pm
St. Olaf Jazz I presents their fall concert. St. Olaf Jazz was voted the “Best College or University Big Band” by Downbeat Magazine in 2011, and by adjudicators at the 2005 University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Jazz Festival — the college’s first appearance at the event. The nationally recognized jazz ensembles at St. Olaf College offer outstanding performance opportunities to students of any major. Under the direction of David Hagedorn, a variety of musical styles are incorporated into every concert throughout the year, including swing, be-bop, fusion, funk, salsa and Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, and New Orleans grooves.
