The Coe College Concert Band and Coe College Jazz Ensemble will perform in concert on Sunday, Nov. 17 beginning at 4 p.m. in Sinclair Auditorium. Featuring a tribute in memory of President John F. Kennedy, less than one week before the 50th anniversary of his assassination, the concert is free and open to the public.

Under the direction of William Carson, the Concert Band will perform exciting music from three American composers (including one from Iowa) and one Czech composer. This year is the 50th of the premiere performance of the piece by the Czech composer, Vaclav Nelhybel, entitled "Trittico."

The Jazz Band, conducted by Steve Shanley, will perform works by Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Count Basie, Dean Sorenson and Bob Washut.
