I don’t like to toot my own horn, but jazz artist Walter White sure does! Walter is a TU alumni who has worked with the Big Band Jazz program on and off throughout his career. This January he visited for a second time to play the OMEA, Oklahoma Music Educators Association, convention. I’ve been in the jazz band here at TU for only one semester and getting to play with a renowned jazz artist such as Walter has been an experience I never even fathomed possible. The concert was nothing short of spectacular. A high school band and UCO’s Jazz band, which consists of student’s getting their master’s degree in jazz, played in the concert with us. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a room more electric than that concert hall was. I only played congas in one song and I felt like a superstar to say the least. Of all the musical experiences I’ve had in my life I think this one touched me the most, and I have decided to stay in jazz band here for as long as I possibly can. TU jazz for life!
