Shepherd University's presentation of the Jazz Ensemble and Lab Band, under the direction of Kurtis Adams, and Jazz Combo, under the direction of Nathan Lincoln-DeCusatis, has been rescheduled for 8 p.m. Nov. 13 in the Frank Center.

In 1999, the band took its Ellington Tour to England and France. In the United States the ensemble has been featured at the Longwood, Blue Ridge and East Coast jazz festivals as well as regional festivals throughout Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey. The group is regularly featured in the Friends of Music annual Tuxedo Junction gala.
