ChiArts Jazz Combo Performs at Navy Pier’s Chicago Live!

ChiArts’ premier small group jazz ensemble joined over 60 of Chicago’s top performing arts organizations to perform at Navy Pier’s Chicago Live! on September 25. The combo performs classic jazz compositions, standards from the popular canon, as well as student and faculty originals at local and national festivals, conferences, and competitions. Third Coast Review recently reviewed the group’s Chicago Jazz Festival performance saying, “This is a tight quartet playing an amazing blend of free jazz, and hard-driving bop. Each member of this quartet can be considered of professional caliber. Saxophone, vibraphone, bass, and drums would seem to be a simple grouping, but these young people tore the roof off.”
