The Hartwick College Jazz Combo, under the direction of Evan Jagels, is an eclectic group of student musicians, college faculty and staff. They dive deep into music from all genres and periods of jazz, and also look beyond jazz’s borders. Students in this ensemble work together to create their own arrangements, with an emphasis on improvisation. They will be joined on the bill by the SUNY Oneonta Jazz Octet under direction of Robert Roman, Music Department Chair. The evening will feature special guest performers and will introduce some of the most talented musicians from Oneonta's two colleges.
