Sponsored by jazz pedagogue and publisher Jamey Aebersold, the Jazz Concert Series at UIC will showcase the work of established Chicago jazz artists throughout Spring 2018. Free and open to the public by Mr. Aebersold’s request, the Series provides the School of Theatre and Music an opportunity to share jazz with our community, and a place for our students to observe jazz skills—such as building a set list—in action.
April 18 marks the final concert of the semester, featuring the Greg Ward Quartet. Ward, a saxophonist and composer, has performed with the International Contemporary Ensemble, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Jazz Institute of Chicago.
