Jazz Ensemble showcases musicians from around Peninsula

PORT ANGELES — David P. Jones, director of the PC Jazz Ensemble, will lead the group’s fall quarter concert at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The free concert will be in the Maier Performance Hall on Peninsula College’s Port Angeles campus, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

The voices of Robbin Eaves of Joyce, Clare Wegener of Port Angeles and Scott Sizer of Port Townsend will be featured, with Wegener and Sizer also playing in the band.

The 18-piece PC Jazz Ensemble will be heard in several instrumental numbers.

The composers and bandleaders represented in this concert include Duke Ellington/Billy, Count Basie, Bill Holman, Pat Metheny, A. C. Jobim, Marty Paich, Larry McVey and Jones.

The singers have chosen familiar songs from Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Ray Noble, Victor Herbert, Luis Bonfa and Horace Silver.

Performers in the band represent some of the best jazz that the North Olympic Peninsula has to offer, Jones said.

From Port Angeles are Tiffani Miller (violin), Richard “Doc” Thorson (tenor sax), Conner Blauser (baritone sax), Marge Rosen (trumpet), Jordan Nicolas (trumpet), Kris Grier (trumpet), Wegener (euphonium), and Jones (keyboards/ director).
