From: North Texas Jazz | UNT Division of Jazz Studies

October 17, 2013

Every fall, the small group program in the Jazz Studies division at the University of North Texas College of Music hosts guest artists who meet with each of our combos and play a concert. The small group program is thriving under the direction of Stefan Karlsson, our professor of jazz piano and a busy performing artist himself. This year we are glad to welcome two groups of guest artists.
