MELBOURNE, FLA.—Former astronaut Winston Scott on trumpet, dean of the Florida Institute of Technology, will lead the combo on Jazz Friday, May 20, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Brevard Art Museum. The performance will take place in the museum galleries. Scott is also a member of the Florida Tech all-faculty band TWITCHY.
Also in the combo are Ron Pirtle, bass; Ron Teixeira, piano; and Chuck Dickey, drums. The three are well-known local musicians who may be heard regularly across the Space Coast. The combo will play a variety of classical and contemporary jazz styles that, said Scott, “are sure to please the jazz aficionado.”
The music is free to museum members and $10 for non-members. The monthly Jazz Friday is sponsored in part by WFIT 89.5-FM and AT&T Real Yellow Pages.
