Celebrate the musical legacy of the great West Coast trumpeter and singer Chet Baker, who would have turned 80 this year. Cool jazz often refers to a style performed by jazz musicians in California in the ’50s and early ’60s. As opposed to the harder edged sound popular on the East Coast during that time, this cooler West Coast sound was more lyrical and soft. Let “trumpet personality” Patrick Boyle and Victoria veteran pianist Tom Vickery take you on a journey through the fascinating world Baker lived in.

UVic Dean’s Lunchtime Lecture Series
Greater Victoria Public Library, Downtown Branch
12:30-1:45pm

The Deans’ Lunchtime Lecture Series was initiated in 1997 to introduce UVic faculty’s research and teaching interests to a community audience in an off-campus location.  An important objective of this lecture series is to increase the public’s awareness and knowledge of current research at UVic. Lectures are normally scheduled during the spring and fall terms on Fridays from 12:30 to 1:45 pm at the Central Branch of the Greater Victoria Public Library. The time scheduled for the lectures is one hour and fifteen minutes. Presenters usually speak for about 45 minutes to leave time for questions and discussion.  Typically, all of the lectures offered each term are fully subscribed (65 people). A program coordinator in the Division of Continuing Studies coordinates the lecture series and attends the talks to assist speakers and greet participants.
