On Wednesday, April 26, the Keene State College Jazz Ensemble will be performing their annual spring concert.

The ensemble will be led by Steve Cady.

Cady was selected to be the new director of the jazz ensemble following the retirement of Don Baldini after the fall 2016 semester.

Cady is a KSC alumnus who was not only a member of the band, but also a student under Baldini.

During the concert, the band is scheduled to play “Contemporary and Traditional Big Band Jazz Music,” according to Cady.

Cady also noted that Maynard Ferguson, Snarky Puppy and Sammy Nestico will be among the artists whose songs are played on the evening.

Though one guest trumpet player will be playing the band, the ensemble mainly consists of students.
