SMU jazz combos to perform May 8 at Acoustic Café

WINONA, Minn. — Two Saint Mary’s University student jazz workshop combos, directed by John Paulson and Eric Heukeshoven of the SMU Music Department, will present a free concert from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 8, at the Acoustic Café, 77 Lafayette St. This event will feature student musicians who have been playing together all semester, and it will serve as their “final exam.”

They'll be playing well-known jazz standards by composers like Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis and Duke Ellington.
