Rowan University’s Department of Music and the Maynard Ferguson Institute of Jazz Studies present the 48th Annual Rowan Jazz Festival’s closing night concert, A Tribute to Oliver Nelson, on Friday, February 16 at 8:00 p.m. in Pfleeger Concert Hall. Guest artist Oliver Nelson, Jr. joins acclaimed director/performer Denis DiBlasio and the Rowan Jazz Band for a salute to his late father’s groundbreaking work with selections from Nelson’s The Kennedy Dream.

The Kennedy Dream is an album of original works by noted African-American composer/arranger Oliver Nelson recorded in 1967 in honor of the late President John F. Kennedy. The eight tracks are interspersed with audio clips from notable speeches made by JFK. The Rowan performance will include narration by the university’s provost, Dr. James Newell.

Oliver Nelson, Jr. will join Denis DiBlasio for a pre-concert discussion starting at 7:45pm on stage.

This concert is part of the Music of Social Justice Series.
