UW-Superior and Superior High School bands join forces for Jazz Vocal Extravaganza

Bands from the University of Wisconsin-Superior and the Superior School District will combine for an evening of jazz on Tuesday, Dec. 12, at 7:30 p.m. in the Manion Theatre.

“It’s going to be fun and a chance to hear some of the vocal talents we have in the area,” said Dr. Greg Kehl Moore, Professor of Music and Jazz Program Director.

The evening will feature music by Pat Metheny, Thad Jones, Miles Davis, Michael Phillip Mossman and Freddie Hubbard performed by three different jazz combos – two from UW-Superior and one from Superior High School under the direction of Joe Kasparek.

“Superior High School’s performance space is under renovation,” said Moore. “All of their ensembles are displaced. I thought it would be a nice gesture to invite them to share the concert with us.”

The concert will feature singers Aine Miller, Kristi Beaver, Taryn Pederson and Rufina Robbins.

Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and free for students. The Manion Theatre is located in the Holden Fine and Applied Arts Center at 1805 Catlin Ave. in Superior.
