Kaleidoscope Events Continue This Week

1 March 2005 Kaleidoscope 2005, the spring arts festival at Jacksonville State University, continues with two outstanding performances this week.

  • On Thursday, 3 March the Chagall Trio performs at 7:30 p.m. in the Mason Hall Performance Center. Michael Korn on violin and Craig Hultgren on cello, both members of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, are joined by Lester Seigell on piano, who is currently on the faculty at Birmingham Southern College, in a program of works by this classic instrumental grouping. They will perform the first piano trio by Beethoven, Trio in E flat, Opus 1, No. 1 as well as the Trio in E flat by Franz Schubert. In addition they will also perform "Addendum" by Chick Corea.

  • On Saturday, 5 March at 7:30 p.m., JSU Jazz I will perform in the auditorium of the Theron Montgomery Building. JSU Jazz I recently returned from an appearance at the Notre Dame Jazz Festival, the nation's oldest and most prestigious collegiate jazz festival. Each year the Notre Dame Jazz Festival invites a dozen of the top collegiate jazz ensembles in the nation to perform on the South Bend, Indiana campus. This year JSU Jazz I was one of the featured groups.

    Renowned trumpet player Terrell Stafford will appear with this award-winning ensemble on Saturday evening as guest artist. Well-known as an international performer, recording artist, and educator, Stafford has performed and recorded with Bobby Watson, Victor Lewis, McCoy Tyner, Steve Turre, Cedar Walton, The Clayton Brothers, The Mingus Big Band, and the Village Vanguard Jazz Orchestra. He is a member of the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band and is a mentor for Jazz at Lincoln Center. In addition to maintaining a busy performance and recording schedule, he also teaches at Temple University in Philadelphia. This performance on Saturday with guest artist Terrell Stafford will be a highlight for jazz aficionados.
