Jazz/classical mix in store Sunday

STERLING – Who says jazz music and classical music don’t mix? Not the Sterling College Music Department. The instrumental music program will be presenting an unusual concert at 3 p.m. this Sunday, April 18 in Upper Wilson that will include both jazz and classical styles of music and will feature both the Jazz Band and the Flute Trio. 

Director Larry Brownlee said, “This is a pretty unusual combination for a concert: jazz and classical music. However, we want to show the diversity of the instrumental music department, not only in the music that is performed, but also in the talents and abilities of the students.  Two of the classical flute trio also play other instruments in the jazz band.”

Members of the Sterling College Jazz Band include Grace Major, Hillsboro; Nyadoar Williamson, Wood River, Neb.; Robbie Stansbury, Lyons; Jake Pieplow, Sterling; Keeley Coon, Eureka; Luke Harding, Sterling; Bryson Brownlee, Sterling; Nathan Wells, Haven; Shara Shepard, Bennington; and Nick Amezola, Corona, Calif. The flute trio includes Major, Shepard, and Claire Fisk, Frederick, Colo. 

There is no cost to attend the Sunday afternoon concert, which will also be livestreamed online. Email for a link. There is no charge for the online performance either.
