When the University of Hartford was incorporated just over 50 years ago by business and community leaders, they envisioned a center of education and culture for Greater Hartford. At its core, it would be a university for the community created by the community.
The University has come a long way since its humble beginnings on Hartford’s last remaining farm, evolving from a local school for commuters into a comprehensive university that attracts students from throughout the world. Yet it remains true to its original mission of serving as a valued resource for individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout the Hartford region, offering hundreds of programs that serve the University and its neighbors every day. For over 45 years listener supported WWUH has served an important role in the University's community service mission.
Out Here & Beyond - Marty Ehrlich
Multi-instrumentalist Marty Ehrlich has become one of the most highly regarded jazz musicians of his generation. His latest recording, A Trumpet in the Morning, is one of his most ambitious projects to date, featuring a large ensemble performing six Ehrlich compositions, including the title track, a 23-minute epic inspired by an Arthur Brown poem.
Ehrlich will speak with Chuck Obuchowski about this recording on Tuesday, April 15 at 10 a.m. during Tuesday Morning Jazz, Out Here & Beyond. Listeners will also have an opportunity to hear several pieces from the album.
The Marty Ehrlich Large Ensemble will perform A Trumpet in the Morning on Thursday, April 17, 8:30 p.m. at the UMass Fine Arts Center's Bezanson Recital Hall in Amherst, MA. Members of the all-star band include saxophonists J.D. Parran, Jason Robinson, and Adam Kolker; trombonist Ray Anderson; trumpeter Eddie Allen; pianist James Weidman; and drummer Matt Wilson. The concert marks the conclusion of the 25th anniversary season of the Magic Triangle Jazz Series, produced by WMUA radio at UMass.
