Faculty Jazz Quintet to Perform on Oct. 28

The Department of Music Faculty & Friends Concert Series will present the Faculty Jazz Quintet in a performance of the music of Horace Silver at 7:30 PM, Tuesday, Oct. 28, in the Rowe Recital Hall. Tickets are $9 general admission, $7 seniors and UNC Charlotte faculty and staff and $6 for all students. The Rowe Galleries will be open one hour prior to the concert.

Pianist Horace Silver (1928-2014) began his career with Stan Getz. He then played with luminaries such as Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, Charlie Parker and Miles Davis. In the early 1950s, he joined drummer Art Blakey to form the Jazz Messengers and was a key figure in the development of hard bop. Silver formed his own quintet in the late ‘50s and wrote a number of pieces that have become jazz standards. The Oct. 28 program will include "The Jody Grind," "Nica's Dream" and "Summer in Central Park," among others.

The Faculty Jazz Quintet features Will Campbell (saxophone), Michael Hackett (trumpet), Noel Freidline (piano), Ron Brendle (bass) and Rick Dior (percussion).

Know Your Title IX Series Scheduled

UNC Charlotte’s Title IX Office, Center for Wellness Promotion, and Dean of Students Office join The Feminist Union to present "Forty IX'ers: Know Your Title IX"; a four-part series on sexual assault, stalking and relationship violence. The series will offer education, panel discussions, resources and additional learning opportunities related to Title IX and the Violence Against Women Act (also called Campus SaVE).

According to Dawn Floyd, the University's Titile IX coordinator, "We are hoping these programs are not only informative, but will also provide students with an opportunity to ask questions about UNC Charlotte’s processes and resources and an opportunity to discuss their concerns about these issues on our campus."

The series kicks off on Oct. 27 with a session on applicable Title IX laws; what the laws mean for students; how and where to report a complaint of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence or stalking; confidential vs. non-confidential resources; and how complaints are handled at UNC Charlotte.
