POCATELLO—Twice a month beginning on Oct. 3, diners at The Yellowstone Restaurant in Pocatello can enjoy music from Idaho State University student jazz ensembles as part of the ISU Jazz Presents concert series.
Every first and third Thursday of the month, a jazz ensemble composed of ISU students and faculty play an opening set at 7 p.m. During the second set, musicians from the community are welcome to join in.
The concert series has no cover charge, but listeners can enjoy food and drinks from The Yellowstone while taking in excellent local talent.
“The Yellowstone is a great place to enjoy quality food and drink while hearing some great small group jazz performed by our wonderful student musicians,” said Jonathan Armstrong, ISU director of jazz studies. “Each performance will feature a different jazz combo performing classic jazz standards, with some fresh arrangements and original compositions thrown in. It’s a fun night out and an excellent opportunity to check out all the talented jazz musicians we have at ISU.”
The next concert in the series takes place Oct. 3, with subsequent performances on Oct. 17, Nov. 7, Nov. 21, Dec. 5, and Dec. 19.
