LCC Jazz Band with Velocity




Lansing Community College’s Jazz Band is partnering with local dance company Happendance to offer a combination of live jazz and original choreography 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday (Feb. 16 and 17) at LCC’s newly renovated Dart Auditorium. Happendance’s professional dance company, Velocity, will accompany the band during four of its eight pieces.

The show will feature a variety of jazz styles, showcasing the compositions of jazz greats such as Count Basie, Michael Philip Mossman and Eddie Harris.

“Jazz music was created for dance, and I’m so excited to have the opportunity to showcase the dance element at our concert, especially with an institution like Happendance, which has been a leader in dance education in Lansing for over 30 years,” said Jazz Band instructor Jonathon Gewirtz.

The show is free and open to the public, but donations to benefit LCC’s performing arts organizations are welcome. For more information, visit
