Jazz Ensemble with Guest Artist Christopher Hollyday

The acclaimed SDSU Jazz Ensemble, featuring Special Guest Artist Christopher Hollyday, will be performing at 5pm and 7pm in SDSU’s Smith Recital Hall on April 18, 2019. Under the direction of Professor of Music and Director of Jazz Studies, Bill Yeager, this performance will be an invigorating celebration of jazz music.

A graduate alumnus of the SDSU jazz program, Christopher Hollyday, will be returning to campus as a featured guest artist. Christopher Hollyday began performing publicly in 1983 in the Boston area. He has since toured across the globe and recorded with RCA records. Hollyday completed a master’s degree in jazz studies at San Diego State University, and has taught privately and performed in San Diego for over twenty years.

“I am humbled to have the opportunity to be out front this time as the guest artist,” said Hollyday. “It’s like coming home, sharing my experience, and continuing my own education as an artist and jazz educator myself. The concert will also be extra special to me because three of my former private students are now currently pursuing their own music degrees at SDSU.”
