Annual Jazz Fest with trumpeter Marquis Hill: Concert with UW Jazz Faculty

April 26 @ 8:00 pm

- $5 - $15

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the UW-Madison Jazz Orchestra.

With UW-Madison jazz faculty and trumpeter Marquis Hill. 

“Marquis Hill hones a warm, mellifluous tone on trumpet and flugelhorn with which he unravels sleek melodic passages that are as commanding as they are cogent. As a composer, he builds upon his distinctive sound to craft arresting originals that embrace post-bop, hip-hop, R&B and spoken word. After releasing four well-received discs on Skiptone Music – New Gospel (2011), Sound of the City (2012), The Poet (2013) and Modern Flows, vol. 1 (2014) – Hill raised his profile significantly by winning the 2014 Thelonious Monk Trumpet Competition, which awarded him a $25,000 scholarship and a recording contract with Concord Records.”

Johannes Wallmann, director.

Ticketed: $15/$5 students. Free to Mead Witter music majors, staff and faculty.
