KRTU 91.7’s Year of Jazz Grand Finale is this Sunday, October 7 at 4pm at the Laurie Auditorium, concluding a yearlong initiative to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Trinity University’s radio station. The free concert will feature The San Antonio Jazz Suite with the King William Jazz Collective and the string quartet from Musical Offerings—and a performance by The Jim Cullum Jazz Band.
Since last October, KRTU has partnered with more than 20 non-profit organizations—including Artpace—to stage monthly jazz performances. To do our part to celebrate a fellow San Antonio institution during the Year of Jazz, we featured the Kris Kimura Quintet live in concert in our Hudson (Show)Room in early June.
We think every year should be a year of jazz. And we’ll be at the Grand Finale on Sunday, so look for Membership Associate Mike Martinez and Grant Writer Ryan Sachetta at the Artpace table. In the meantime, hit up KRTU radio online for some quality jazz programming.
