Jazz on the Lawn at noon Monday

PORT ANGELES — “America’s Classical Music” will be celebrated at the 10th annual Jazz on the Lawn concert at noon Monday at Peninsula College.

The 90-minute concert will feature the college’s Jazz Ensemble.

The event will be free and open to the public at the college’s Port Angeles campus, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

East of Keegan Hall

The show will take place on the terraced lawn just east of Keegan Hall.

Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair and lunch.

In the event of inclement weather, the concert will take place in the Pirate Union Building (PUB).

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

The group will perform music by Mary Lou Williams, Sammy Fain, Thelonious Monk, Art Blakey, John La Barbera, Tito Puente, Tina Brooks, Daniel Barry and two brand new original works by David P. Jones, professor of music at the college.

Best on Peninsula

As usual, the performers in this band represent some of the best that the North Olympic Peninsula has to offer, organizers said.

Representing Port Angeles are Tiffani Miller (violin), Bob Bailey (alto sax), Marge Rosen (trumpet) and David Jones (keyboards/director). 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 & soprano saxes) and Scott Sizer (trumpet), while drummer Tor Brandes makes the trek all the way from Brinnon.
