LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 10, 2012) — The Bluegrass Area Jazz Ambassadors (BAJA) bring "A Jazzy Holiday Concert" to the University of Kentucky campus this week. The concert, which is free and open to the public, begins at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12, at the Singletary Center for the Arts Recital Hall.

 

The Bluegrass Area Jazz Ambassadors are a popular performing ensemble affiliated with the Bluegrass Area Jazz Association, a nonprofit organization committed to the promotion of jazz education and the performance of jazz in the Bluegrass area. The group is comprised of musicians from the community, both professional and amateur, as well as students from UK Jazz Studies. 

 

This 18-piece big band, which came together in 2004, performs under the direction of Miles Osland, artistic director, and Raleigh Dailey, musical director. The Jazz Ambassadors' leadership also serves on the faculty of the UK School of Music at the UK College of Fine Arts. Osland is a professor of saxophone and director of UK Jazz Studies, and Dailey is an assistant professor of jazz studies.
