Crane jazz students to perform with Wynton Marsalis

Listen to this story
SUNY Potsdam will bestow an honorary degree on jazz legend Wynton Marsalis this week. He thought it would be nice to have some company at the event, so Marsalis invited five jazz students from the Crane School of Music to play in New York City on Friday at the gathering.

The students and professor Bret Zvacek, director of Crane's Jazz Studies program, will perform as part of a ceremony to award an honorary Doctorate of Music to Marsalis. They hope to play at least one song with the internationally known trumpet player. Todd Moe has more.
