TheHotSardines_polkadot_585Members of the Indiana community are invited to an open rehearsal of the Hot Sardines with the IUP Jazz Ensemble as they prepare for IUP’s top jazz group to join them onstage for part of their performance at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 3, in Fisher Auditorium.

The open rehearsal is scheduled for 5:30–6:00 p.m. in Fisher Auditorium on Sunday, but may start as early as 5:00 p.m. if the Hot Sardines sound check ends early. If time allows at the end of the rehearsal, there will be a short Q&A hosted by the director of the Jazz Ensemble, Kevin Eisensmith.

In the last two years, the Hot Sardines have been featured at the Newport Jazz Festival and the Montreal Jazz Festival, have sold out NYC venues from Joe’s Pub to Bowery Ballroom and more than 150 tour dates from Chicago to London, and have released two albums on Universal Music Classics to critical raves and a number one slot on the iTunes Jazz chart in the U.S. and internationally.

If you enjoy jazz, you don’t want to miss this opportunity to hear how the pros put it together! Those in attendance will also receive a coupon redeemable for $4 off a ticket to the evening performance. For more information, call the Lively Arts at 724-357-2787 (ARTS) or e-mail
