UNFORTUNATELY, THIS CONCERT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. DePauw University’s top priority is the safety of the community. With the reporting of the first positive case of COVID-19 identified in Marion County, near Indianapolis, the University is following health department recommendations to cancel large events.
The DePauw Jazz Ensemble frames its set with three pieces written by the great trumpeter, composer and arranger Bob Meyer. Meyer’s work for the pocket big band configuration is among the best and most often features his own compositions. Other highlights will include The Outlaw by Horace Silver, written in a highly unusual form, and Bill Cunliffe’s Cuban-influenced Chucho.
