Tom Everett, who retired on February 15 this year after serving Harvard University as Director of Bands for over four decades, will be the guest of honor at this concert at Sanders Theatre on Saturday, April 13 at 8 pm featuring the Harvard Jazz Bands and two of Everett’s most notable protégés, saxophonist/composers Joshua Redman ‘91 and Don Braden ‘85.

“Play It Forward: Celebrating Tom Everett” will include music selections representing Tom Everett’s association with the Harvard Jazz Bands, which he founded soon after his appointment to Harvard in 1971. Under the co-auspices of the Office for the Arts, Everett developed a concept of retrospective concerts with the Jazz Bands that reflect a nuanced overview of leading artists’careers, a relatively new approach to honoring and documenting their contributions to American music.
