The Lyon College Jazz Band will host an evening of jazz favorites at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 28, in the Melba Theater.
Under the direction of Monty Hill, the jazz band will share the stage with the Batesville High School Jazz Band, under the direction of Phillip Shewmaker, and the River View High School Jazz Band from Searcy, Ark., under the direction of Trey Reely.
The performance will also feature saxophonist Earl Hesse, trombonist Sim Flora, and jazz vocalist Leslie Oden.
The event, sponsored by the Lyon College Band Program, is free and open to the public.
The band would like to thank the Melba Theater for welcoming these student musicians into its establishment as they carry on a true American art form.
Lyon is more than just a college. It's a community distinguished by its academic curriculum, unique honor and social systems, and award-winning professors.
