Jazz at Holmes series returns this Thursday, January 23 with Feyza Eren

The Jazz at Holmes series of free concerts at Washington University will begin its winter/spring 2014 schedule of shows with a performance by singer Feyza Eren (pictured) at 8:00 p.m. this Thursday, January 23.

Eren previously performed for the series in July of last year. The rest of this semester's schedule apparently is still being confirmed, as the email announcing Eren's appearance actually was the second sent out by Jazz at Holmes over the weekend, superseding Saturday's announcement that drummer Montez Coleman's trio would be the opening performer of the year.

That first email also made reference to "forthcoming highlights in the lineup (including) solo piano by Washington University's very own Kara Baldus, an evening of Chick Corea's music, music on the famed ECM label, and 'Mandela and Music of Social Justice.'" but no other details of the schedule have been released so far.

Presented most Thursday evenings when school is in session, the Jazz at Holmes concerts are free and open to the public. Unless otherwise noted, concerts begin at 8:00 p.m. in Holmes Lounge, Ridgley Hall, located on Washington University’s campus at the west end of the Brookings Quadrangle, near the intersection of Brookings and Hoyt drives.
