Clayton Community Big Band Presents “2-Hour Energy” in Spivey Hall, Apr. 30
The Clayton State University Department of Visual & Performing Arts presents the Clayton Community Big Band in “2-Hour Energy,” a concert filled with fast-paced, contemporary big band music, at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Apr. 30, in Spivey Hall. Admission is free and open to the public.
Directed by Stacey Houghton (Rex) and Assistant Director Art Thompson (Fayetteville), “2-Hour Energy” features challenging and fast-paced instrumental compositions from composers Gordon Goodwin, Bob Mintzer, Les Hooper, Tom Kubis, Thad Jones and Sammy Nestic. Drawing from talented composers’ challenging pieces creates a high energy level that demands an equally high skill level from Clayton Community Big Band musicians.
