This past weekend found my husband and I visiting Western Carolina University and our "oldest" son (in quotes because he's a twin) and his wife during WCU's Jazzfest weekend. What a wonderful way to spend a Friday evening. Bobby Watson, a famed jazz alto sax player, was one of the guest musicians that played with the WCU Jazz Ensemble. We also purchased the ensemble's new CD. Hawk not only soloed on Friday night, but he is also the only Bari Sax player on their CD.
WCU has a wonderful music program and every year we are able to head the 7 hours across state and attend a performance. We have yet to wish we had stayed home. If you live in Western North Carolina, it is well worth the trip to see WCU's musical groups perform.
