Prairie State College’s Jazz Fest is Friday

Some of the nation’s top jazz artists will perform at Prairie State College’s (PSC) 27th Annual Jazz Fest at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 20, in the Barnes & Noble College Auditorium in the Conference Center of the PSC main campus, located at 202 S. Halsted St. in Chicago Heights.

Featured musicians include trumpeter Orbert Davis, drummer Ernie Adams, bassist Larry Gray and saxophonist Ari Brown, as well PSC’s Professor of Music Valerie Nicholson on piano. 

“This year, we are thrilled to have Ari Brown join the team. Not only is he a master musician, he brings a wealth of experience as a teacher for the visiting schools," said Nicholson, who also coordinates the festival.

Ticket prices are $15 for general admission. Students and senior citizens tickets are $10 each. Tickets are available in advance in the PSC Business Office Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tickets also can be purchased at the door on the evening of the concert.

The Friday performance is part of the annual two-day festival hosted by PSC, which also includes instrumental clinics for area junior high and high school musicians led by the featured artists. 

Select students from the instrumental clinics also will be invited to perform with the guest artists during the Friday evening performance.
