The University is hosting a jazz and dance event, held in conjunction with the Speaking of the Sky: Jon Schueler exhibition, on 14 May, 1-4pm. Join us in celebrating the centenary of this American abstract expressionist who was involved in the American jazz scene in the 1950s.
Glasgow based Pianist/composer Peter Johnstone, fast becoming recognised as one of the leading lights in British Jazz, will also perform with his trio featuring bassist Brodie Jarvie and drummer John Lowrie. Peter won the prestigious BBC Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year competition in 2012.
The Glasgow Lindyhop group will also perform and will lead a taster session to show people how to swing dance.
This event is part of the 2016 Festival of Museums; a weekend of events for all the family in Scottish museums.
The event includes guided tours of the exhibition, afternoon tea, a jazz band and swing dance performance.
This event is open to students, staff and members of the public. Tickets include afternoon tea and cost £10 for adults, £6 for children.
Places must be booked in advance via the University’s online shop.
