Jeff Tower Memorial Quartet

September 21, 2018

07:30 PM - 09:00 PM

Cuyamaca College's Samuel M. Ciccati Theatre, B Building

, (619) 660-4288

The Jeff Tower Memorial Quartet, named after the late Hemet High School icon who during his 30 years as band director taught many students who went on to careers as music educators or musicians, performs at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21, at Cuyamaca College's Samuel M. Ciccati Theatre in the B Building.

The band, led by Hemet High School alumnus and Cuyamaca College Performing Arts Chair Taylor Smith, is comprised of graduates of the high school's program, some who also attended the Idyllwild Arts Academy. Tower died on July 4, 2017. Under his leadership, the Hemet High School band recorded several albums and performed across the world. Classic jazz tunes and original compositions will be performed, said Smith, who said he got the idea for the memorial quartet at Tower's funeral last year.

Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for students, seniors and reserved tickets. Guests can call (619) 660-4288 for reservations, and the first 20 students who attend are admitted for free.
