Jazz Legend Visits USU
A jazz world “legend” is coming to Utah State University’s Wassermann Festival, and with the appearance of Dr. Lonnie Smith on jazz organ Wassermann Director Dennis Hirst continues to expand the artistic boundaries of the 2015-16 season. Two local musicians, Corey Christiansen and Jay Lawrence, join Smith to form a combo for the evening’s concert. Biographical material describes Smith as an authentic master and guru of the Hammond B-3 organ.
Smith performs Monday, Dec. 7, 7:30 p.m., in a new venue for the festival, the Morgan Theatre in the Chase Fine Arts Center on USU’s Logan campus.
Reserved seating tickets are $24 for adults, $20 for USU faculty and staff and students ages 8 and older can purchase a $12 ticket. Tickets can be purchased at the Caine College of the Arts Box Office located in room L101 in the Chase Fine Arts center or online via a link on the Wassermann website (http://www.usu.edu/wassermann/).
