The Rock Valley College Music Department along with the RVC Foundation are sponsoring a Jazz Concert at Gloria Dei Church (4700 Augustana Rd in Rockford) on Friday, September 28, 2012 at 7:00 p.m.
The concert is a memorial to Kurt Boucek, who taught as an adjunct music instructor at RVC for a number of years before passing away suddenly in July. A free-will offering will be accepted with the proceeds from the concert going towards the establishment of a music scholarship in Kurt's name.
Performers will include faculty, staff, students and administrators from RVC as well as jazz performers who worked with and knew Kurt, led by Ken Stein.
