The Baylor String Quartet -- four string students with a love for the jazz idiom -- will present a recital at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 21, in Roxy Grove Hall.
Members of the chamber group are violinists Jonathan Hager and Jonathan Raveneau, violist Blair Williams and cellist Maggie Fleetwood. They will be joined by seven other music majors.
The quartet's program will open with Dave Brubeck's "Blue Rondo à la Turk," "Blue Moon" by Richard Rodgers and "The Nearness of You" by Hoagy Carmichael. They will follow those standards with performances of Norman Gimbel's "Bluesette," Paquito d'Rivera's "Wapango," and Duke Ellington's "Caravan." The group will close the program with "New Country" by jazz violinist Jean-Luc Ponty, "My Romance" by Rodgers and Hart and "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To" by Cole Porter.
