Saint Martin's College lecture series features jazz musicians on jazz
Tuesday, March 23, 2004
Lacey - A musical journey through the world of
jazz awaits the audience at the next presentation in the Saint Martin’s
College Lecture Series. This free musical presentation and talk will be
at 7 p.m. March 30 at Kreielsheimer Hall on the Saint Martin’s College
campus, 5300 Pacific Ave. S.E. The public is welcome.
Presented by Saint Martin’s interim Vice President
for Academic Affairs and jazz aficionado Robert Miller, Ph.D., and a
group of local musicians, the program will discuss this uniquely
American music form from several perspectives. Joining Miller, who plays
the sax, will be area musicians Dave Joyner on piano, Phil Lawson on
guitar, Steve Luceno on bass and Dave Snodgrass on drums. Besides
playing samples of many jazz styles that had their earliest roots in
Southern slave music, the musicians will talk about their music - what
they listen to and what inspires them.
Miller, a music education expert, directed the
Lionel Hampton School of Music at the University of Idaho for 15 years
before joining the Saint Martin’s faculty in 2001. He earlier chaired
the department of music at Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas
and was assistant director of the Arizona State University, Tempe,
School of Music.
He also has been a faculty member in the Stan
Kenton Clinics and served as a clinician, performer or adjudicator at
numerous clinics and workshops.
The Saint Martin’s Lecture Series, presented by
the college’s honor society, the Society of Fellows, is a joint project
of TCTV, the City of Lacey and Saint Martin’s. The upcoming presentation
will be taped and later aired on TCTV several times in coming weeks.
