Hours of world-class Jazz, food, and fun for just five dollars! MSU Jazz Night brings together both the Hackett and Michigan State University jazz bands.
This year’s concert comes with a special twist. Galesburg Augusta's jazz band is combining with Hackett for a big band performance!
Galesburg’s band director, Mr. Walker, was the band director for Hackett before Mr. Peters. Together, they formed this union to give the Galesburg jazz band to play in a big band setting, considering they have only four members.
“MSU Jazz Night is very exciting for all of us, even more so because we get to play with more people,” says senior saxophonist Keegan Gallagher, “It’s always a great opportunity to work with other musicians, world renowned directors, and professional musicians.”
MSU Jazz Night is this week on Thursday at 7 PM. Tickets are $5 for students and $15 dollars for adults, and can be ordered in advance here. We’d love to see you there!
