MARS HILL JAZZ ENSEMBLE Appearing Sat Nov 8th 2014 8:00pm

Tickets:  $10

Any given style of music is only a generation away from oblivion. Although jazz no longer holds the central place it once occupied in American music it remains a vibrant and creative art form, and the student players of the Mars Hill Jazz Ensemble are ready to carry into the future.

The ensemble, under the direction of Mars Hill University faculty member Dr. John Entzi, is an auditioned group of brass, saxophone and rhythm section players that plays for campus and community events. 

The band has the personnel to tackle big band classics from the swing era, but their repertoire spans many decades, incorporating more recent rock and funk influenced jazz compositions.
