A couple of weeks after I started working at the Faculty I coordinated a wine and cheese reception in room 130 for donors and patrons of the Jazz Studies program after a big band concert in early April. I hadn’t been given much direction and Prof Terry Promane asked me if students could come. Sure, why not I said. Well, the concert came and afterwards people starting coming into room 130. And they kept coming. And they kept coming. And they kept coming. Then the students all arrived. I’m pretty sure we had well over 200 people in that little room and it was one hopping party that went quite late. It was a fun, slightly wild introduction to the Faculty of Music.
