AMHERST, Mass.—The Amherst College Jazz Ensemble will present “Jazz ’Round Midnight” at 11:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 10, in Buckley Recital Hall in the Arms Music Center at Amherst College. At Amherst, ’round midnight means that the free concert indeed begins at 11:30 p.m., and that the music will include the theme song by Thelonious Monk, as well as music of Woody Herman, Count Basie, Nancy Wilson and Les Hooper. Elegant refreshments will be served.

This is the first of several performances by jazz students at Amherst College on Homecoming Weekend. All six jazz combos will join the jazz ensemble in performance during the reception held in the Coolidge Cage after the football game on Saturday, Nov. 11. An alumni jam session will follow the Choral Society Concert on Saturday, Nov. 11, at around 10 p.m. in Buckley Recital Hall. More information is available at the Jazz@Amherst Website.
