College jazz concert set for Tuesday night

PORT ANGELES — Maier Performance Hall will be the venue for the summer concert of the PC Jazz Ensemble at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Maier Hall is on the Port Angeles campus of Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

The event is free and open to the public.

The PC Jazz Ensemble features Scott Sizer on vocals with an 11-piece jazz band.

The band will play music by Mary Lou Williams, Sammy Fain, Thelonious Monk, Art Blakey, John La Barbera, Tito Puente, Tina Brooks, Daniel Barry and two brand new originals by ensemble director David Jones.

Sizer will sing “East of the Sun, West of the Moon,” made famous by both Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett. He will also give the lesser known, “I Don’t Know Enough About You” an outing.

The performers in this band represent some of the best jazz that the North Olympic Peninsula has to offer, and hail from across the North Olympic Peninsula.

Tiffani Miller (violin), Bob Bailey (alto sax), Marge Rosen (trumpet) and Jones (keyboards/director) represent Port Angeles. Sequim provides Andy Geiger (tenor sax), Tim Naples (bass trombone), Elaine Gardner-Morales (bass), and Nicia Pfeffer (drums). From Port Townsend are John Adams (alto and soprano saxes), and Scott Sizer (trumpet), while drummer Tor Brandes is from Brinnon.
