Jazz at the Station brings student musicians

OGDEN — The WSU Jazz Combos will be the featured artists next week at the monthly Jazz at the Station event.

The concert begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13, in the Grand Lobby of Ogden’s Union Station, 2501 Wall Ave.

Performances by two jazz combos from the school will highlight a renewed interest in jazz by students there. The combos are student-led, but coached by WSU faculty member Dan Jonas.

“We are so proud to present the jazz musicians of Weber State every time they perform for Jazz at the Station,” event co-producer Caril Jennings said in an email. “This program started more than 20 years ago to encourage student jazz musicians and jazz audiences. It has grown quite a bit since then but we are always happiest when we see jazz traditions carried on by younger musicians.”

The concerts are sponsored by the Union Station Foundation, WSU Alumni Jazz, and grants from RAMP and Ogden City Arts.

Admission is free to the all-ages event, but guests are encouraged to arrive early as the jazz groups always play to a standing-room-only crowd.
