Absolutely loved it. The horn section was especially good and it was nice to see the proposal and then hear the pianist play the wedding march! The entire orchestra was outstanding and it was really an enjoyable evening!

I think the TU jazz program is one of the best college programs in the nation, and this concert was exceptional with the new jazz guitar faculty member Al-Jibouri more then adequately covering the position left by Bates, the superb orchestra led by Dr. Howard, and of course the student members of the orchestra, as well as the songstress and vocal faculty Sarah. Walter White was outstanding and much worthy of being the J. Donald Feagin Visiting Artist.

The concert and Master Class that were "free and open to the public" were together an extraordinary opportunity to not only hear these extremely talented performers but to watch them "up close and personal" as they helped each student in the Master Class get the precise one-on-one counsel and encouragement they needed at that moment. Mr. Pfortmiller especially personified a master teacher

The festival was great. There were great films, foods, and prices. House Jazz, one of the film which depicted prison system, was emotionally appealing drama.

Much anticipated, on my part. Glad I went. We needed his lesson in history to remind us of the reasons for the status quo. I think we are lucky to have his upbringing amongst the blacks, shape his view, to highlight the culture of cruelty. Good man, liked his style of presentation.

I enjoyed the jazz music of the young musicians and faculty, and will try to support this talent for the many years to come.
