Spring 2015

Campus Talent Celebrates Spring

NJIT faculty, students and friends have mustered an impressive array of talents to form a jazz band, string and wind ensembles and a dance group. With the snows of winter now behind us, these talents will be a celebratory part of spring on campus. Three special events will offer programs that include a performance by both the Jazz Band and Highlander Dance Team, string and wind selections as diverse as J.S. Bach and Sinatra, and jazz interpretations ranging from Thelonius Monk and Buddy Rich to Katy Perry and Pit Bull.
