Ensemble Concert Hits the Right Chords with Audience

Instrumental Arts Concert 2016April 13, 2016 (Jackson, Miss.) - The Instrumental Arts Concert on April 22 will feature Belhaven’s Wind, Jazz and Jazz Guitar Ensembles. This free concert in the Belhaven University Concert Hall will begin at 7:30 p.m. and include a diverse range of music and an exciting mix of instruments coming together for the first time.

Dr. Paxton Girtmon, Associate Professor of Music, said, “With a variety of ensembles, a confluence of improvisational genres and styles, this concert will deliver a unique musical flavor! This is a musical stew with all the ingredients including contemporary jazz, some original Belhaven Blues and a side dish of gospel music, (jazzed up of course). In short, it’s going to be fun!”
