“Jazz for Springtime”

Jazz for Springtime advertisementAh, spring–one day sunny and 70 degrees, the very next, overcast and 40. This most improvisational of seasons is the perfect time for…Jazz! The Kalamazoo College Department of Music invites everyone to enjoy an afternoon of jazz music at its “Jazz for Springtime Concert” on Sunday, April 23, at 4 p.m. in Dalton Theatre. Amina Figarova, jazz pianist, and Bart Platteau, flute, will present original music and will also assist Ron Di Salvio with the premiere of his work “Puglia Suite”, based upon a recent visit to Puglia (Apulia), Italy. Amina and Bart are from the Netherlands and now reside in New York City where they perform with a jazz sextet. Ron is the adjunct jazz piano instructor at Kalamazoo College as well as a fine jazz pianist and composer. Please plan to attend this incredible Sunday event and celebrate the spring season!
