Happy New Year! Furman Jazz Studies is continuing our series of live-streamed “mini-concerts,” which allow us to perform live, but in safe conditions for our student musicians. We are unable to have live audiences for now, so please tune in to join us. Next week, on Monday, February 22, at 8:00 PM, the Furman Jazz Ensemble will present a concert featuring music composed by black composers, including a few things that speak directly to the ongoing struggle for equality, including Charles Mingus’ “Fables of Faubus” and Oliver Nelson’s “Emancipation Blues and Black, Brown, and Beautiful.” Horace Silver’s “The Jody Grind” and Duke Ellington’s “Amad” (from his Far East Suite) round out the program.
You can find the link to the live stream for each concert shortly before each concert on this page:
