Lindenwood University Jazz Festival
Join us for the First Annual Lindenwood University Jazz Festival, sponsored by Mozingo Music, on Friday, March 28, 2014, at the J. Scheidegger for the Arts on the campus of Lindenwood University!
This year we welcome Dave Camwell, Horace Alexander Young, and Gary Hobbs as our clinicians and adjudicators. We also have the extraordinary fortune to feature trombonist and international recording artist Marshall Gilkes as our feature performer with the LU Jazz Band.
Bands will perform from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The free evening concert by the LU Jazz Band featuring Marshall Gilkes will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Bezemes Family Theater in the J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts. In addition to his work as a group leader and soloist, Mr. Gilkes is also a member of the Maria Schneider Orchestra, Edmar Castañeda Trio, and a former member of the Richard Bona Group.
Mr. Gilkes has been voted a “Rising Star” each of the past four years in Downbeat Magazine's annual critics’ poll, and he has received critical acclaim from audiences and journalists around the world.
The entire event is open to the public, with free parking provided.
The Festival only has room for 18 bands, so please register early!
