CORVALLIS, Ore. – San Francisco-based Resonance Jazz Ensemble will visit the Oregon State University campus for a free performance at noon on Friday, March 4.
The performance will be in the Memorial Union Lounge, 2501 S.W. Jefferson Way, Corvallis, and is sponsored by the School of Arts and Communication’s SAC Presents series and Music à la Carte. The public is welcome to attend.
Bandleader and pianist Steve McQuarry and his eclectic chamber jazz ensemble (cello, bass, viola, violin, saxophones, flute, vocals, piano and drums) perform inspired originals and creative adaptations of jazz standards.
Naomi Bristow, an OSU graduate and violist, will join the ensemble as a guest performer. Originally from the Bay Area, Bristow was a member of Resonance Jazz for many years while living and performing in San Francisco. She now teaches elementary music in Polk County and is a member of the Corvallis-OSU Symphony Orchestra.
Music à la Carte concerts have been a tradition at OSU since 1969. The informal, 45-minute performances are held most Fridays during the fall, winter and spring terms, and showcase a wide variety of musicians and performance ensembles.
Hourly parking is available a short distance from the Memorial Union at Reser Stadium, 606 S.W. 26th St. The Beaver Bus, a free shuttle on the OSU campus, services the lot approximately every 15 minutes.
SAC Presents is supported in part by gifts from donors, including donations made during the Cornerstone for the Arts Challenge in which donors gave over $6 million to support the arts at OSU. For information on giving to the arts at Oregon State, go to: http://bit.ly/1TW5BUB.
