Group Sax, one of the most unique musical ensembles in the Midwest, is the featured combo for the December 2 First Friday Jazz concert at First Lutheran Church. The group will soon be celebrating their 25th anniversary of multi-state jazz performances, including a headliner performance at Lincoln’s Jazz in June concert series.
The Group Sax members include Paul Harr on soprano and alto saxophones, Mark Benson on alto and tenor saxophones and clarinet, Ed Love on tenor and C-melody saxophones and Scott Vicroy on baritone saxophone, bass saxophone and clarinet. Each member has a strong background in jazz performance, leading their own groups, teaching at the high school and college levels and playing in the pit orchestras for touring Broadway shows. The December 2 concert will include some traditional jazz numbers, some original compositions and holiday songs!
The performance is scheduled between 11:30 am and 1:00 pm at First Lutheran’s Activity Center at 1551 South 70th Street. There is no admission charge, but audience members are encouraged to bring non-perishable items for the Lincoln Lutheran Food Pantry. Lunch will be available for purchase.
