Event details

The PSU Jazz Ensemble will open its season with a virtual concert at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 30 at the Bicknell Family Center for the Arts on the campus of Pittsburg State University. 

The concert, under the direction of Robert Kehle, will be held in the Linda and Lee Scott Performance Hall.  

Members of the band will wear special performance masks and bell covers and will use spread-out seating for the ensemble. 

The playlist will include traditional jazzbluegrass, and more — from Basie's Blues in Hoss Flat to the Buddy Rich version of the Beatles classic, Norwegian Wood,” with some Latin tossed in and Kenton's version of the Dorsey classic But Beautiful.” 

Crowning the concert will be a work featuring violinist Edith Sigler, a senior in the PSU Department of Music known as both an accomplished classical violinist and a champion bluegrass player. With the recent passing of the great fiddler Charlie Daniels, the PSU Jazz Ensemble commissioned a special arrangement from the pen of L.A. trumpeter and composer Jeff Bunnell to feature Sigler on the Daniels' classic, The Devil Went Down to Georgia. 

The concert will be streamed at Facebook.com/bicknellcenter and on Vimeo.com/pittstate
