Jazz Musician to Perform at UW-RF


SEPT. 2, 2005--A renowned jazz musician who has played with Chick Corea, Alicia Keys and Bobby McFerrin will perform at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls at 8 p.m. on Sept. 29 in the Abbott Concert Hall of the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building.

Avishai Cohen knows a thing or two about both conservatory jazz as well as rousing African township music, sleek funk and European folk. He has played with such jazz notables as Herbie Hancock, Roy Hargrove as well as with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Boston Pops Symphony.

The free Wyman Series concert is sponsored by the UW-RF Performing Arts Committee as well as the Diversity Awareness Committee, both part of the Leadership Devlopment and Programming Board. Funding for the series is provided by student fees, which are ultimately allocated to various student organizations and committees.

Cost is free for students, $3 for age 18 and under and $5 for the public. For more information contact the UW-RF student leadership center at 715/425-4911; more information about the artist is available at visit www.avishaimusic.com .
