Live at the Five & Dime - The UA Student Jazz Combo

| Jul 22, 2021 | 05:00 PM - 07:00 PM (EDT)

The UA Student Jazz Combo will perform at Live at the Five & Dime on Thursday, July 22 from 5–7 p.m. The concert is free and open to the public and is outdoors of the Walmart Museum. The series is a collaboration between the Walmart Museum, University of Arkansas Department of Music, and Downtown Bentonville Inc.

 

The UA Jazz Combo includes Derek Salonen (saxophone), Sam Parker (piano), Ben Cook (bass), Alex Wiegel (drums), and Ben Cloud (guitar). The UA Department of Music recently introduced an undergraduate jazz performance track and in 2018, the UA Jazz Ensemble was awarded Outstanding University Jazz Ensemble at the 38th Alcorn State University Jazz Festival. Several concerts in the Live at the Five & Dime series this year have featured UA faculty along with students, but this will be the first ensemble of the season highlighting students.
