The sounds of Lincoln University's symphonic and jazz bands will be heard together at their annual Spring Concert set for 7 p.m. April 13.

The free concert will be held at the Richardson Fine Arts Center on the campus of Lincoln University.

Lincoln University has been holding this concert for more than 50 years, according to director of bands Larry Newby.

This will be the first year that the symphonic, jazz and area high school bands will all be performing together for the Spring Concert.

Newby said he thinks guests will most enjoy the collaboration of the high school and university students, as well as the depth of the genres they will be performing.

Among many others, "Harlem Nocturne" by Duke Ellington will be performed by the jazz ensemble and the Symphonic Band will be performing "Torch of Liberty," a march by Karl King.

The symphonic band will also be collaborating with members of the Jefferson City High School and Capital City High School bands to perform "Loch Lomond" by Frank Ticheli.

The concert will have a total of 45 Lincoln students performing.

"We're just really excited to have the opportunity for our students to display their talents to this community and we are excited that the community is going to be able to take part and come into Lincoln University to see what we're doing here on campus," Newby said.
