Eastern’s jazz faculty will perform for the ‘Goodness of Music’ concert at 7:30 p.m. in the Doudna Fine Arts Center Theatre on Sunday, Jan. 20.

Admission is $10 for the public and $5 for students.

The ‘Goodness of Music’ benefits the David Frank Tanner and Ronald Eugene Gholson Endowed Fund Celebrating the Goodness of Music.

Gholson created the fund as a tribute to his friend Tanner, and it has helped establish backing for equipment, travel, scholarships and guest artists for the jazz studies program at Eastern.

“We are grateful for the donors whose generosity supports our students and the jazz studies program.

(Gholson’s) tribute to David Tanner has been a wonderful gift to EIU,” Jazz studies director Sam Fagaly said in a press release.

At the concert, Fagaly will play the saxophone, Paul Johnston will play the piano, Sam Winternheimer will play the bass and Jamie Ryan will play the percussion.

The music performed by the jazz faculty features pieces by Horace Silver, McCoy Tyner and the Yellowjackets.

The jazz faculty will also perform arrangements of jazz standards.

Tickets for the concert are available for purchase at the Doudna Box Office’s website and at the door.
