Dinner and Jazz on Tap at Annual Harper Event

A barbecue chicken dinner will be topped off with the sweet sounds of jazz this week at Harper College's Dinner and Jazz Concert - an annual outdoor tradition featuring a buffet with all the appropriate summertime fixings and, this year, a performance by the Kenn Spurr Jazz Quartet.

The 42nd edition of the event will start with dinner at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 20, outside the Student Center (Building A) on the College's main campus, 1200 W. Algonquin Road in Palatine.

The buffet will include chicken, pasta, corn on the cob, salads, watermelon and a cookie. The concert will feature pianist Spurr - a Harper instructor - and the rest of his group performing a variety of standard and contemporary jazz selections by Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie and more.

Tickets are $6.50 for general admission and $3 for children; those six and under are admitted free.
