Saxophonist Bixler to perform at Lincoln Center
December gets off to a swinging start tonight in New York City, when jazz saxophonist David Bixler, music performance studies, performs with the Arturo O'Farrill Latin Jazz Sextet. He plays through Sunday (Dec. 6) at Dizzy's Club Coca Cola, home of jazz at Lincoln Center.
The group will give two performances nightly Dec. 1-3 and Dec. 6; on Dec. 4 and 5, the sextet will play during the "late set," which begins at 11:30 p.m. and continues until the club closes.
The concerts follow the October release of the group's most recent CD, "Risa Negra." Bixler wrote two of the compositions on the album, "Goat Check" and "The Darkness is My Closest Friend," as well as performing on it. O'Farrill, who will be the featured guest during BGSU's Jazz Week in March; Bixler, and the other members of the ensemble spend the entire album exploring the modern possibilities inherent in Latin rhythms.
Focus on enrollment
The new Student Enrollment Communication Center (SECC) is up and running. In its first six weeks of operation, the SECC, which is designed to communicate with prospective and current students for recruitment and retention, has made over 34,000 calls. Only 20,800 calls made all of last year.
The online Zoom News is provided as a service to BGSU faculty and staff.
