Loyola’s Jazz Band gave music lovers something to dance to during the last Music Under the Oaks concert this year on Oct. 23.
Under the direction of Gordon Towell and Nick Volz, more than 20 Loyola musicians and vocalists performed a mix of famous jazz and pop songs. Jackson Delany, a Loyola graduate student, gave a special performance on the piccalo trumpet, a smaller version of a trumpet.
Along with Loyola’s band, the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra Brass Quintett, the New Orleans Concert Band and the Polymnia Quartett also performed. Music Under the Oaks is a yearly concert series sponsored by Bellwether Technology and Iberia Bank in Audubon Park. The event is free and open to the public.
