MELBOURNE, FLA.—Florida Institute of Technology’s music program offers a variety of performance ensembles including the Panther Jazz Band, known for its big band style and the Latin Percussion ensemble, known for its Afro-Latin sound. On Dec. 2, at 5 p.m., the Department of Humanities and Communication will present “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” led by Jamie Younkin, assistant professor of music.
