Lavender Jazz will perform their spring concert this Friday at 7:30pm in Sauder Concert Hall.

The ensemble, led by director Christopher Fashun, is considered Goshen College’s “big band.” Student musicians of any major audition and join the ensemble every year, getting together to play classic jazz hits and standards, as well as their own interpretations of hits from contemporary rock and pop bands.

At least one Radiohead cover will be performed during their spring concert, as well as charts and covers of works by Otis Redding, Nat King Cole and Thad Jones. Student singers will be showcased in the concert, as will small jazz combos.

For those who cannot attend the concert in person, there will be a live stream available on Friday, which can be found at

Tickets will go on sale at the door approximately one hour before the beginning of the concert. Prices will be $7 for adults and $5 for seniors and non-GC students, while GC students, faculty and staff will have free admission with ID.
