The UT Jazz Orchestra and AIME had a successful ten-day tour of Europe this summer, performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival on July 2 and 3, at Luxembourg Gardens in Paris on July 6, and at the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam on July 8. In addition to big band standards, the programs featured compositions and arrangements by UT students Sarah Milligan, Bryan Kennard, Chase Goldman, and Ari Burns, and by UT professor John Mills. Members of the groups also heard (and sometimes met) many of the greats in jazz, especially at the North Sea festival. Pictures can be found under the “media gallery” tab on this web site, or at the UT Jazz Facebook page. Thanks to everyone that supported the trip!
