NuFusion, Henderson State University’s exciting student jazz ensemble, will perform a free public concert outdoors on Henderson’s Quad Friday, April 27, at 8 p.m. The performance, part of Spring Fling week, will feature a wide range of music, much of which was arranged by students.
“We’ll have the same great sound and lights as in recent years, thanks to the generous support of Henderson’s Student Activities Board,” said Dr. Rick Dimond, NuFusion director.
Dimond said the concert will feature instrumentals by Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Henry Mancini, Vulfpeck, Clifford Brown, and more. Songs by Stevie Wonder, Prince, Van Morrison, Panic at the Disco, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, Yes, and Lenny Kravitz will be among the songs featured.
In case of rain, the concert will be held in the Garrison Center’s Grand Ballroom. Dimond said the band will perform an “unplugged-style” show if rain forces the concert indoors. But there will still be an impressive sound system and plenty of lights.
NuFusion includes about 20 student musicians and features a standard big band horn and rhythm section with lead and background vocalists.
The Quad area is located between the Garrison Center and Russell Fine Arts building.
