365 Things To Do In Costa Mesa – Get Jazzy – Day 231

An “Evening of Jazz” at Vanguard University

We are all invited to hear the Vanguard University Jazz Ensemble perform at Newport Mesa Church on Saturday, March 5, 2011 at 4pm for an “Evening of Jazz.”  The music is free and open to the public and to the entire Vanguard community.  How cool is this? The jazz ensemble is made up of only 17 students out of the 2,200 members of the student body so it is a really selective, talented group.  Dr. Kenneth Foerch is the director and the group is really popular because their music spans all genres, including be-bop, Latin, fusion and more.

Did you know that the word jazz was actually a West Coast (he-ey!) slang word that people out here used to describe the music scene in Chicago around 1915?
