Instrumental Arts Concert To Feature Belhaven Ensembles

March 28, 2014 (Jackson) - The Instrumental Arts Concert on April 5 will feature Belhaven’s Wind, Percussion Jazz, Jazz and Classical Guitar Ensembles. Dr. Paxton Girtmon, Associate Professor of Music, said, “With a variety of ensembles, a confluence of improvisational genres and styles 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!”

This free concert in the Belhaven University Concert Hall will begin at 3:00 p.m. and include a diverse range of music and an exciting mix of instruments coming together for the first time.

Dr. Girtmon adds, “Belhaven’s own, Dr. Roger Parrott, President of Belhaven University, will join the Wind Ensemble as a special guest soloist on John Phillip Sousa’s The Liberty Bell."

This is just one of the many exciting events from Belhaven’s School of the Arts. Check out Arts Ablaze for plays, dance and music concerts, poetry readings, gallery exhibits and more happening this year.
