MUW Music Department Presents ‘An Evening of Jazz, Tangos, and Milongas’

The MUW Music Department presents “An Evening of Jazz, Tangos, and Milongas,” a concert featuring the MUW Jazz Ensemble, on Tuesday, April 25, 7:30 p.m. in Connie Sills Kossen Auditorium, Poindexter Hall. The concert is free and open to the public. Under the direction of Dr. Valentin M. Bogdan, Assistant Professor of Music, the group will perform a mix of jazz standards, jazz fusion, Ethnic Jazz and Argentinean Tangos.


The MUW Jazz Ensemble is a select group of MUW student musicians who perform often on the MUW campus and around the Columbus community. This year the ensemble is invited to perform at the prestigious Alcorn State Jazz Festival, a showcase featuring university jazz bands from Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas. Due to its eclectic instrumentation ranging from electric guitar and saxophones, to violin, euphonium, and accordion, the MUW Jazz Ensemble specializes in unconventional types of jazz, such as ethnic jazz and tango music, some of which will be showcased during this Tuesday’s concert, in addition to beloved jazz standards.
