Newberry College Jazz Big Band at the Historic Newberry Opera House

Thursday, May 11 @ 8:00 pm



Newberry is home to the historic Newberry Opera House, where performers from all over the world take center stage in Lake Murray Country!

The Newbery College Jazz Big Band has a long, storied tradition. It serves as the keystone for the Newberry College Jazz Festival that takes place every March and has been running for over 60 years. The Jazz Big Band, led by Dr. Jerry Gatch, traditionally ends each academic year with a “graduation concert” right before commencement. Come and hear them finish off another school year with some jazz favorites as well as contemporary compositions.
