Grammy Nominee to Perform with OKCU Jazz Orchestra

Jazz saxophonist and award-winning composer Bob Mintzer, a 2017 Grammy nominee, performs with the 18-piece Oklahoma City Jazz Orchestra at 8 p.m. Monday, Jan. 16, to kick off Oklahoma City University’s 2017 Distinguished Artists Series at the Bass School of Music.

Mintzer joins forces with the Oklahoma City Jazz Orchestra, now in its eighth year and praised by the Oklahoma Gazette for restoring “performances of full-scale, concert-style, big-band jazz arrangements back to the metro for the first time since the 1980s.” 

Their OCU concert debut will be held at Petree Recital Hall, 2501 N. Blackwelder. Tickets ($15 adults, $5 students, free with Bass School ID) available from 405-208-5227 or okcu.edu/tickets.
