Some of Richmond’s most renowned jazz contemporaries have united to bring an international medley of jazz compositions to VCU Oct. 3.
South African jazz musicians will perform side-by-side with VCU students Sept. 24 as part of a cultural exchange program with the university’s sister school KwaZulu-Natal University in Durban, South Africa.
Richmond offers students more than just summer classes, work and a hot sun. In June, July and August, the city will host a number of festivals that VCU students can afford. Here are just some of the summer activities and festivals available to the students still in town.
The VCU Jazz Orchestra I performed their spring concert at the Singleton Center on Tuesday, after having to reschedule because of inclement weather last week.
Antonio Garcia is no stranger to the spotlight — in fact, just a few months ago he wrote, arranged and performed a piece with VCU Jazz alumni at Nelson Mandela’s U.S. memorial service in Washington, D.C. This month, Garcia will lead Jazz Orchestra I when they perform at the Singleton Center on Feb. 13.
