Visiting Jazz Artists

During the week of May 7-11, 2007, MIT hosted three amazing jazz musicians on campus. Joe Lovano, Kenny Werner, and Judi Silvano were artists in residence, working with the MIT Wind Ensemble and the MIT Festival Jazz Ensemble. The culmination of this collaboration was a performance on Friday, May 11 in Kresge Auditorium, featuring the premiere of No Beginning, No Ending by Kenny Werner. Dorothea and Bradford '49 Endicott commissioned this piece for the MIT Wind Ensemble in honor of Brad's 80th birthday. Kenny Werner also gave a free solo performance in Killian Hall on May 8th.
