Fine Arts
Rothwell Recital Halll

The Lamar University Cardinal Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of Rick Condit, will present its annual spring concert on Tuesday, March 5, at 7:30 p.m. in the Rothwell Recital Hall on the Lamar campus. The concert, titled “Video Gamer Jazz,” will feature the music of guest artist and New York based composer, arranger, performer, teacher and bandleader, Kyle Athayde.

Athayde’s music draws inspiration from a wide variety of sources including video games and internet memes, to jazz and classical masterworks. The arc of a performance ranges from images of nature to Japanese Anime scenes to swing, hip-hop and rock grooves. In addition to original music, he also writes arrangements of well-known and popular songs of all kinds, while still retaining the unique sound and excitement for which he is known.

Admission is free and open to the public.
