ABERDEEN, S.D. – The sweet sounds of jazz will blend with the sweet taste of dessert at an upcoming Northern State University event.

The evening includes dessert, coffee and the Vocal Jazz Ensemble performance. Special guests will be NSU professor Fred Hemke on saxophone and Ron Parker on piano.
Northern art professor Sara Christensen Blair will create a live painting in response to the music, which will be auctioned off at the end of the concert.
Cost is $8 in advance or $10 at the door. Advance tickets are available at the NSU music department office, Ken’s SuperFair Foods, or from any NSU Vocal Jazz Ensemble member.
