The 18-member University Jazz Orchestra has received international acclaim for its high performance standards and creative approach to big band jazz. The ensemble is directed by Trent Kynaston, WMU professor of music, who has programmed a mix of traditional big band swing music and contemporary selections for the Oct. 4 concert.
