“I am very happy to have Denis DiBlasio give our final concert for this season. His performances are exciting, musical, and inspiring. A naturally positive and humorous person, his concert will surely be an uplifting and enjoyable jazz experience for everyone,” said series director Dr. Michael Di Liddo.
Baritone saxophonist, composer, arranger and flute artist Denis DiBlasio directs the jazz program at Rowan University in New Jersey. He is also the executive director of the university’s Maynard Ferguson Institute of Jazz Studies at Rowan. With nine recordings of his own along with published texts, arrangements and compositions, DiBlasio is known throughout the world.
After five years as music director for Maynard Ferguson in addition to touring on his own, DiBlasio continues to travel around the world performing and teaching.
