UNT Two O’Clock Lab Band will perform on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. in the Clubhouse Ballroom. Tickets are $5.
The HOA is offering the Robson Ranch residents a concert by the UNT Music Department.
While the One O’Clock is the highest level of the nine Lab Bands; the Two O’Clock has, for several decades, held acclaim as a “destination band” at the University of North Texas. The Two O’Clock produces professionally engineered albums and, on concert tours, is well received. The band has a long list of successful alumni musicians who never played with the One O’Clock. Making the One O’Clock often is a matter of timing. If, for example, several talented musicians are vying for a certain chair in the One O’Clock and that chair is held by someone for two years, then a qualified student might likely complete his or her studies playing in another Lab Band.
The UNT Two O’Clock Lab Band will present an evening of swinging big band jazz. The program will include swing-era classics by the Count Basie Orchestra and lively, accessible contemporary repertoire.
For three consecutive years (1992, 1993 and 1994), Down Beat Magazine selected the UNT Two O’Clock Lab Band as winner of the annual Student Music Awards. The band has recorded ten albums.
