Florida Tech is pleased to host: Davidson College Orchestra and Jazz Band
The Davidson College Symphony Orchestra, directed by Tara Villa Keith, and the Davidson College Jazz Ensemble, directed by William Lawing, will perform at the Gleason Performing Arts Center at Florida Tech University on Tuesday, January 7, 2014 at 7:30pm as a part of their annual tour.
The Symphony Orchestra will perform music from their fall semester, including excerpts from Borodin’s Polovtsian Dances, Suppé’s Light Cavalry Overture, and more! The Jazz Ensemble will perform a variety of jazz styles, from the classic big band charts to contemporary compositions.
The forty-five members of the ensembles, from all different parts of the country, represent the broad diversity of talents, interests, and career aspirations that are common at Davidson, one of the nation’s pre-eminent liberal arts colleges.
Jack Goffinet, a sophomore from Melbourne, has been a saxophonist and clarinetist in the Davidson College Jazz Ensemble and Symphony Orchestra for the last two years, and will be a featured performer throughout our Winter Tour.
