Bookmark and Share

 

The appearance of jazz legend Diane Schuur with the United States Air Force Commanders Jazz Ensemble on April 13 at Sonoma State University has been cancelled because of budget cuts to the Department of Defense as a result of sequestration. 

The 7:30 p.m. concert in Weill Hall will still take place with the Commanders Jazz Ensemble. 

The concert is currently sold out. Tickets will be honored at the door. Persons holding tickets that they do not plan to use are advised to notify the box office coordinator by phone 664-2353 or by sending an e-mail to (jenny.juhl@sonoma.edu).

The USAF Band of the Golden West released a statement yesterday reporting that all of Schuur's concerts in April were cancelled due to funding issues. Two others had been planned in Yountville and Stockton.

For more information, contact Doub Leibinger, at leibinge@sonoma.edu or the US Air Force Band of the Golden West at  424-­‐8770.
