Jazz Ensemble and Gospel Choir to perform at Bluffton

Prepare to dance along in your seat during Bluffton University’s Jazz Ensemble and Gospel Choir concert at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 6, in Yoder Recital Hall. The performance is free and open to the public; however, a free-will offering will be taken during intermission for music scholarships.

The Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Andrew Liebermann, will perform a diverse program of music ranging from the jazz ballad “Angel Eyes” to the music of Oliver Nelson and 1960s groove tunes by Duke Pearson. They’ll also perform the dubstep-inspired tune “Lingus” by the jazz fusion group Snarky Puppy.

The Gospel Choir will team up with the Jazz Ensemble for “He Reigns Forever.” They will also perform two acapella spirituals, “I’m Going to Sing ’til the Spirit Moves in My Heart” and Arnold Sevier’s “Precious Lord.”
