The Clark College Jazz Ensemble hosts the 6th Annual Big Band Bash at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 10, in the Gaiser Student Center on the Clark College campus at 1933 Fort Vancouver Way in Vancouver. The concert is free to the public.
“We’re excited to have the Clackamas Community College Jazz Ensemble, directed by Lars Campbell, join us on stage this year,” says Richard Inouye, Clark’s Director of Bands. “And we’re also featuring the community group, VanPort Jazz. If you like the sounds of the Big Band era, you’ll love this concert.”
