The Darryl White Combo will open the 9th season of First Friday Jazz concerts this Friday, October 4! This series of monthly concerts from October through May are offered as First Lutheran’s gift to the Lincoln community and to provide an East Lincoln venue for some of the region’s most talented jazz musicians and groups.
Darryl White’s trumpet performances have earned him a great reputation at jazz festivals, clubs, orchestras and studios throughout the United States. His career has allowed him to balance his jazz performance with his interest in classical music. Other combo members include Hans Sturm on bass, Greg Ahl on drums and Ron Cooley on guitar. While the concert will feature a wide range of jazz pieces and styles, Latin Jazz will receive special attention.
The free concert is scheduled between 11:30 am and 1:00 pm in the Activity Center at First Lutheran Church, located at 1551 South 70th Street. Lunch will be available for purchase. Donations of non-perishable food items for the Food Pantry are welcomed.
Audience members should use the temporary entrance toward the west end of the church. Although there is considerable construction activity happening at the church, the Activity Center is not affected.
