Ferris Jazz Band Concert Nov. 10

The Ferris State University Jazz Band fall concert will take place Thursday, Nov. 10 at 8 p.m. in Williams Auditorium.

The 21-student band will perform big band swing, rock and Latin pieces. The concert is free and open to the public.

"There are very few chances to hear big band jazz in our area. The type of ensemble and repertoire make this show unique to Ferris," said Matt Moresi, director of the Jazz Band. "There are so many diverse interests and activities here at Ferris. This is an opportunity to check out some fun and interesting music."

Moresi hopes students and the local community members attend the concert to support the students performing and connect with the music played.

"It makes me happy when people are singing something they heard as they are walking out," he said.

The Jazz Band has been rehearsing the fall concert twice a week since the beginning of the fall semester and will be presenting their holiday concert on Thursday, Dec. 8.
