Fall 2018

Hooray for our newest family member!

Christopher Burnett Quintet – CbQ performs on the First Saturdays, January through December in 2018 at Black Dolphin. The thesis of this residency is parallel to that of the history of modern jazz – to develop beyond an assemblage of great individual players into an established group. CbQ is Christopher Burnett, alto saxophone; Charles Gatschet, guitar; Roger Wilder, piano; Bill McKemy, bass; and Clarence Smith, drums. CbQ plays Burnett original compositions and select masterworks. We are recording during the week of October 22 at BRC Audio Productions in Kansas City. Hope to see you at these concerts.

Terri Burnett Flute – T continues to perform with the University of Saint Mary community wind ensemble under the direction of Dr. Bill Krusemark. Her last performance was the Spring Concert. The First City Flute Choir members recorded their Spring Concert and it is still being edited for release on ARC.
