Cullum Series at ASU continues in April
Augusta, GA – A performance by Michele Rosewoman and Quintessence will be held on Tuesday, April 17, at Augusta State University. The group will present jazz fusion at 7 p.m. in ASU’s Jaguar Student Activities Ballroom as part of the Cullum Series, A Year of Jazz at ASU.
Ms. Rosewoman is a modern jazz composer, pianist, and bandleader. Early in her career, she inspired raves from critics, musicians, and music fans. Her debut recording as a leader, The Source, was praised for its radiance and ingenuity. In a review published by DownBeat magazine, Ms. Rosewoman’s direction was likened to that of master innovator Charles Mingus. With her maiden voyage on record, she distinguished herself as both a talented player and a composer of unique vision. The concert is free with a valid ASU ID. General admission tickets are $7.
The second program in April will feature local jazz musicians in a Cullum Capstone/Homegrown concert at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 19, in the JSAC Ballroom. ASU’s Wind Ensemble will perform at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 24, in the Maxwell Theatre. The last program in April will highlight jazz tunes by ASU’s Orchestra and will be held on Thursday, April 26, at 8 p.m. in the Maxwell Theatre. Admission is free for all three concerts with a valid ASU ID. General admission tickets are $5.
