Summer Jazz Institute Gala Concert

Summer Jazz Institute Gala Concert

June 16, 2016 - The Hawai‘i Summer Jazz Institute Gala Concert will be held on Thursday in Seto Hall, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The free concert features the summer institute bands, the University of Texas at Arlington Jazz Orchestra, and the International Jazz Collective Big Band with ukulele master Benny Chong.

This will surely be an evening of fantastic music. The summer institute bands are made up of middle and high school students from across the island -- 10 different schools in all.

The UTA Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of Tim Ishii, is an award-winning collegiate jazz ensemble.

The International Jazz Collective is made up of the summer institute faculty and several of our talented professionals in Honolulu. It is one of the finest live big bands you will hear locally and will feature original arrangements with ukulele legend Benny Chong joining the mix.

Tell your friends and family. Hope to see you there.
