Bennie Maupin, jazz masterclass

Time: 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm

Contact: Gordon Towell · · (504) 865-2164

Location: Roussel Performance Hall, 2nd Floor, Comm./Music Complex


Friday, March 4th, 12:30 p.m. (Free to Participants)

Bennie Maupin's highly personal bass clarinet sound helped define such classic jazz recordings as Miles Davis' Bitches Brew, Jack Johnson, Big Fun and On the Corner, as well as recordings by Herbie Hancock's Mwandishi band, and the Headhunters. The multi-woodwind player has also recorded with Marion Brown, Chick Corea, Horace Silver, McCoy Tyner, Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, Jack DeJohnette, Andrew Hill, Eddie Henderson and Woody Shaw, to name only a few.

The instrumentation of Maupin’s current group, The Bennie Maupin Ensemble, harkens back to the tradition of great saxophone-bass-drum trios, such as the group led by Sonny Rollins with Wilbur Ware and Elvin Jones. Maupin’s approach to his music is intentional and profound, yet alive in the interpretation of the moment.

First Friday Dodgeball and/or Knockerball Tournament

Time: 3:30 pm to 5 pm

Contact: Zachary Bracey

Location: Residential Quad

This is a must on the First Friday of every month! Come out and join your fellow students for some Dodgeball and/or Knockerball. You can peg your friends with a ball or climb inside one and knock your friends to the ground. It's a great stress release! Tournaments will be set up for one or both sports, so bring your friends and get a team together. Go to to sign up in advance or register on-site prior to the start of games. All equipment will be provided. 

Dodgeball/Knockerball is a TOURNAMENT sport, so games will only last 1-2 nights depending on the number of teams that enter. Typically tournaments are double elimination.

The Dodgeball and/or Knockerball Tournament will take place in the Res Quad, with a brief captains meeting at 3:30pm before the start of games (brackets will be set immediately following). This tournament will be self-officiated.
