In celebration of Weatherford College’s sesquicentennial, the WC Jazz Band will premiere a new work by composer Haley Woodrow at their Spring Jazz Concert on Friday, April 26.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Alkek Fine Arts Center. Doors open at 7 p.m. and admission is free.

Woodrow was commissioned to write the piece, titled “The Most to Gain,” as a tribute to the college’s 150-year history. The song traces the college’s history from its humble beginnings in 1869 to its present place among the country’s community colleges.

The jazz band will perform other pieces written by jazz icons, as well as original compositions and arrangements by Cal Lewiston. WC music instructors Richard Powell and Dutch Ode will be featured on piano and trombone, respectively.
