Also featured vocally on both concerts are veterans Isabel Petty and Ciara Giordano, with newcomers Kelly He and Ariana Meyers. The UCSB Jazz Combos are directed and coached by Jon Nathan, along with Matt Perko (UCSB Staff, Office of Public Affairs), and Brandon Rolle (graduate student in Music Composition). Please join us for an afternoon and evening of classic jazz! Concerts at 4 p.m. (free) and 7:30 p.m. (ticketed) in Karl Geiringer Hall.
