Don Keranen Memorial Jazz Concert
Michigan Tech was one of the pioneering Jazz Ensemble programs in the Midwest. The late Associate Professor Don Keranen was a visionary educator that not only added jazz to the fine arts curriculum but also developed the Huskies Pep Band by putting them in stripes and giving them the scramble band format. This concert will feature the resident Research & Development Big Band, the Jazz Lab Band, and the fantastic, audience favorite the MTU Alumni Jazz Lab Band. Music will highlight the great repertoire from the last 50 years of Jazz at MTU. Guest artists will also perform.
