For Your Sunday Listening Pleasure


Our Musical Millennial is one of an incredibly talented crew of musicians in the University of Texas Jazz Orchestra. They have a concert today, and it will be live-streamed…which means you can take a listen if you’re into brand-new jazz compositions performed by in a big-band setup.

Professor Jeff Hellmer leads the Jazz Studies Department in the Butler School of Music and is an accomplished jazz pianist in his own right

About the concert, from the web site:

The UT Jazz Orchestra gives students the opportunity to compose and premiere their own compositions on stage with a world class ensemble.The UT Jazz Orchestra takes pride in the number of student compositions it performs. This concert will be featuring five original compositions, four of which are student compositions from Paulo Santos,  Marco Santos, and Thomas Wenglinski.  The Jazz Orchestra will also be featuring an original composition from UT jazz faculty,  Dr. John Mills.

Since he’s my kid (shown below on melodica), I usually go on about the Musical Millennial, but really and truly, every one of these musicians is amazing. It is a real pleasure to hear them, and experience their professionalism.

The Musical Millennial plays melodica as well as piano

The concert will be live streamed from this link from 4:00 – 5:30 CDT today, Sunday, October 13. “See” you there! We were going to watch the live stream but have had a last-minute change of heart and will be there in person. I’ll be the one clapping the loudest.
