Jazz Choirs Holiday Concert

Friday, December 11 2009 at 7:30 PM

The Lionel Hampton School of Music's Jazz Choirs Holiday Concert features regional choirs, with participants ranging in age from elementary school students through college-aged students. It will take place on Friday, Dec. 11, at 7:30 p.m., in the Field House at Moscow Junior High School, 1410 East D St.

Dan Bukvich, professor of music, has partnered with Dale Kleinert, principal of Moscow Junior High, and other community individuals and businesses for this year's event.

"It is exciting to see the community come together to continue this festive tradition," said Kevin Woelfel, director of the Lionel Hampton School of Music.

The concert is supported by the University of Idaho Lionel Hampton School of Music, in conjunction with the Moscow School District, and with support from numerous community and business volunteers and the university president's office.

While seating is unavailable in the Field House, the performance will be streamed live on the Web at www.uidaho.edu/live and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/uidaho.

“We’re sorry we can’t accommodate the thousands of long-term concert-goers this year”, said Bukvich. “This is an experiment to see if an alternate site would work. We will do our best to have capacity for as many people as possible in the future.

DVDs of the 2009 performance also will be available for purchase: www.its2.uidaho.edu/video/store.
