MOUNT VERNON, Ohio (October 19, 2022) — The Music Department at Mount Vernon Nazarene University will present a fall instrumental ensembles concert on Saturday, Oct. 22, at 1 p.m. in the R.R. Hodges Chapel Auditorium. The community is invited to attend this free event.

The Jazz Band program will feature several student soloists on three great jazz big band charts: an up-tempo shuffle entitled “Bradley’s Groove Shop” by Mark Taylor, a beautiful ballad called “Katy” by Sammy Nestico, and finally an arrangement of Sammy Fain’s “Secret Love” featuring the trombone section.
