CSUS gets all jazzed up

California State University, Sacramento gets ready for the 29th annual Sacramento Jazz Jubilee, May 24 - 27 with three concerts featuring renowned performers from around the world.

The University's Jazz Ensembles and Vocal Jazz finish the semester with a bang as they join forces to present the "Spring Jazz Thing" at 8 p.m., May 17 in the Music Recital Hall in Capistrano Hall.

The award-winning groups are performing under the direction of CSUS professors Steve Roach and Julie Adams who say the program includes, "Exciting tight harmonies and characteristic fun and flair." Tickets are $8 for general admission and $5 for student and seniors.
