The UW-Stout Jazz Band, directed by Aaron M. Durst, will present its first Jazz from Harvey concert at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1, in Harvey Hall Theatre.

The band will be joined by the Stout Jazz Combo and Saxophone Quartet to present jazz standards, new compositions and holiday music.

“The newly remodeled Harvey Hall Theatre provides a charming atmosphere and acoustic-rich environment for an enjoyable evening of jazz,” Durst said.

Music will include “All Blues” by Miles Davis; “Libertango” by Astor Piazzolla; “A Song for Sarah” by Sarah Vaughan and Sammy Nestico; “Haitian Fight Song” by Charles Mingus; and “Hot Chocolate” from the movie “The Polar Express.”

The repertoire will feature a number of soloists playing in the jazz, ballad, Latin and funk styles, making it a concert to appeal to any listener.

Tickets are $5 and are available at the UW-Stout Service Center in Merle M. Price Commons, 715-232-1122, online at and at the door.
