The Commanders Jazz Ensemble
McIntyre Hall Presents

Sunday, August 27, 2017 | 2:00pm
General Admission Seating: FREE - Tickets are required

Under the direction of Master Sergeant Jeremy Laukhuf, The Commanders Jazz Ensemble carries on the American musical tradition of the great traveling big bands, yet offers a lot more than the big band sounds. This energetic group of 20 highly-trained professional airmen-musicians offers an entertaining show you won’t soon forget!

During a concert you’re likely to hear the music of jazz legends Duke Ellington, Woody Herman and Count Basie as well as contemporary big band leaders and composers such as Gordon Goodwin and Maria Schneider. And no concert would be complete without a tribute to the late Major Glenn Miller and his famous Army Air Corp band.

Featuring outstanding soloists as well as a superb vocalist, The Commanders is an ensemble capable of delivering a powerful musical performance.

This program is made possible by the Washington State Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
