November 2, 2006, Peterborough

Trent University is pleased to invite the community to enjoy a free jazz concert in the Great Hall at Champlain College on Monday, November 6, 2006 beginning at 1:00 p.m.

This lunchtime jazz concert is part of a new concert series entitled Music Goes to College.  The November 6 performance features the Dan Fortin Quartet, fronted by Peterborough-born bassist Dan Fortin, a fourth-year student in University of Toronto’s renowned jazz program.  Dan is a multi-faceted musician in a variety of musical groups and ventures, including the Silver Hearts.  The high energy bebop quartet he brings with him to Trent is squared up by Chris Willes (saxophone), Jonah Cristall-Clarke (piano) and Spencer Cole (drums), all fellow members of the University of Toronto program.

The concert is free, and open to students, faculty, staff and members of the public.   A second concert in this year’s series, in a more ‘classical’ vein, is planned for the Winter Term, with details to be announced shortly. 

Meals and refreshments will be available from the student-run Seasoned Spoon (in the old Champlain private dining room), or from the food kiosks adjacent to the Great Hall.  Spectators are also welcome bring their own lunch and enjoy the show!

The Music Goes to College Series is funded through the generous support of the Nind Fund and Trent’s Colleges.  It is an initiative of the newly formed Committee to Support Music Activities and Resources at Trent (SMART), spearheaded by past Ashley Fellow Tim McGee.  The committee hopes to establish Music Goes To College as an annual event.
