A Jazzy Little Christmas

Free online event


Celebrate the season with the MSU Professors of Jazz and friends as they present their festive favorites—a perfect way to swing into the holidays.

The “hard-bop” band is a seven-piece ensemble featuring Etienne Charles (trumpet), Xavier Davis (piano), Michael Dease (trombone), Randy Gelispie (drums), Randy Napoleon (jazz guitar), Diego Rivera (tenor saxophone), and Rodney Whitaker (bass).

The Showcase series is made possible thanks to an endowment from the MSU Federal Cradit Union. 

Saturday, December 12, 8:00 p.m. on the MSU College of Music Livestream Channel
