Snow College Hosts Julliard Jazz, Again

Ephraim, UTAH --

Scott Wilson is on a roll. Could be a drum roll into a cymbal crash, but he specializes in brass. For another year, this Snow College prof and his little-known college in central Utah hosted New York's Juilliard school and, once again, came up with some high notes. In addition to workshops for students enrolled in the department, a Tuesday night concert (last night) has become one of Utah's best-kept secrets, KUER's Steve Williams' prolific endorsements notwithstanding.

The mountains, the academic environment, the student body all prompted a former New York City musician/presenter to declare, "Man, this is abundant."
