The Missouri Southern State University Jazz Collective is set to perform an evening of jazz standards at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 5, in Webster Hall’s Corley Auditorium.
The concert will feature vocalist Emma Miller on songs such as “Georgia,” “My Funny Valentine,” “Here’s That Rainy Day,” “Dream a Little Dream” and others. The featured guest soloist is MSSU alum Robert Terry.
Terry – who will join the Jazz Collective and perform solo works – is an accomplished guitarist who currently teaches guitar at Evangel University in Springfield and performs at the “Shoji Tabuchi Show” in Branson. He’s performed with artists such as Jimmy Osmond, David Osmond and the Lennon Sisters, as well as The Voices of Glory and Janice Martin from “America’s Got Talent.”
The concert will also feature the debut performance of the Southern JazzBones. The trombone quartet performs jazz and popular tunes.
Both groups are under the direction of Dr. Phillip Wise. Admission is free and open to the public.
