Alumni Jam Session!

The first Alumni Jam Session, in what we hope to be a yearly event, will take place on Saturday, Oct. 22 as part of the homecoming weekend. We'll be located in room 7 of the Music Building, and will begin around 10:00pm (immediately following the Choral Society concert in Buckley Recital Hall). Special guests include Andy Jaffe, former Lecturer in Jazz at Amherst, and several jazz stalwarts including Jason Blynn (guitar) Yemi Cole (bass) and Gopi Mohan (drums). Join us as players (alums and current AC students) and/or audience. We will provide all that is needed for the musical end of things, and we'll have some outstanding refreshments. Contact Bruce Diehl (413) 542-8308 for more information.
