The Yavapai College Music Department presented an “Evening of Jazz” on Monday, December 6, 2010 in the Yavapai Performance Hall. It featured not one, but two Big Band ensembles, the Roughriders and the Trailblazers. Dr. Roy Breiling was the music director. Cost of admission was $5.00- and was free to youngsters 14 and under. That is a real bargain!
There is a FREE student concert tonight, Tuesday December 7 at 7:00 PM at Yavapai College Performance Hall.
The program had a holiday theme, but songs were arranged for Big Band Jazz. Here is one of the songs by the Roughriders.
Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town
Roughriders Big Band
Here is a sampling from what they played.
There was an intermission after the Roughriders completed their numbers, then the Trailblazers Big Band took the stage.
Here is a video clip of the first two numbers by the Trailblazers:
Deck The Halls and I Came Upon a Midnight Clear – that featured a flugelhorn.
