The Preston Arts Center is proud to announce a new programming venture that will bring the best in jazz to Henderson. The Jazz On-stage series will invite the audience up on the Preston Arts Center stage to hear music by the award winning University of Louisville Faculty Ensemble and the University of Evansville Jazz Band.

On Friday, January 26 at 7 p.m., the University of Louisville Faculty Jazz Ensemble will play a tribute to the music of Miles Davis. Featuring Michael Tracy on saxophone, Ansyn Banks on trumpet, Gabe Evens on piano, Chris Fitzgerald on bass and Mike Hyman on drums. The Castle High School Jazz band will open for the U of L ensemble with a new piece of music.

The series continues on Saturday, February 3 when the University of Evansville Jazz Band gives an encore performance of their wildly successful tribute to Duke Ellington. This 22-piece band rocked the U of E campus back in November with a sold out performance.

All tickets will be $10. Tickets will go on sale on January 10 for both performances. You can purchase tickets from the Preston Arts Center events page. For more information call 270-831-9800 or email PAC Director Eric Kerchner.
