The Jazz Ensemble will be performing arrangements of many classic jazz standards including George Gershwin’s Fascinating Rhythm and But Not For Me, as well as Lullaby of Birdland by George Shearing (who received an honorary degree from DePauw in 2001).

The program will also consist of the debut of two arrangements by the band’s director, Shawn Salmon, as well as hits from the Jaco Pastorius Big Band, Benny Golson, and Don Sebesky. The concert will feature several of the graduating seniors of the DePauw University Jazz Ensemble in their final performance with the band.
