Jazz and gelato a draw for campus crowd

The turnout for Wednesday’s entry in the President’s Concert Series was so encouraging, organizer Mary-Ann Rennie is planning to extend it to September.

“The original plan was to make it a summer series, but people have been so happy with it, I would like to hold another outdoor concert once the semester starts,” she says.

Vocalist Shahida Nurullah and pianist Mike Karloff, both music instructors in the School of Creative Arts, performed jazz numbers before a crowd of dozens enjoying the mellow sounds and sweet gelato Aug. 17 on the lawn outside Assumption Hall.

Rennie advises those who missed out to stay tuned for details of the next concert in the series, intended to provide a relaxed venue for conviviality among faculty, students, and staff.
