Weber State University jazz ensemble

WSU’s jazz ensemble aims to honor Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra in a tribute performance on Oct. 24. WSU Jazz, String Orchestra and vocal areas are collaborating for the show.

Fitzgerald and Sinatra were significant figures in the jazz world, producing songs that remain famous today. You might know Fitzgerald as “The Queen of Jazz,” and you’ve probably heard Sinatra’s “Come Fly with Me.” Both artists played pivotal roles in the popularization of jazz and are 20th century stars.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Val A. Browning Center. Tickets are $7 for general admission and $6 for students, seniors and military and can be purchased by visiting WSU’s performing arts website.
