EAU CLAIRE — What do Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Thelonious Monk and Paul Simon have in common?
The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Vocal Jazz Ensemble is slated to perform its works for its fall concert at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 23, in Gantner Concert Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center.
Under the direction of Dan Newman, associate professor of music, the 10-member ensemble plans to jazz it up with tunes from popular to traditional artists.
Kicking off the program will be "On Broadway," arranged by Gary Rosen, followed by "Moonglow" by Hudson/Delange/Mills. A trio composed of piano, bass and percussion will play "Jij-a-Jug," "Little Birdie" and "Blue Monk" before Vocal Jazz comes back out to sing "You Can Call Me Al" by Paul Simon and "Zoot Suit Riot" by Cherry Poppin' Daddies.
Tickets, available at the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727, are $4.75 for adults, $3.75 for seniors, children under 18 and faculty/staff with a university ID, or $1.25 for students with a university ID.
