NuFusion to perform April 28 ]]>
NuFusion, Henderson State University’s exciting student jazz ensemble, will perform a free public concert outdoors on Henderson’s Quad Friday, April 28, 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.
“This year’s concert will be as eclectic as ever, featuring jazz pieces by John Battiste, Duke Ellington, Rob McConnell, Bob Mintzer, and Buddy Rich,” said Dr. Rick Dimond, NuFusion director. “We’ll also be doing classic rock tunes by Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Edgar Winter, and more. Contemporary artists include Adele, Panic at the Disco, C2C, and Bruno Mars.”
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.
