Classic Jazz Tunes at ABAC First Tuesday Concert October 2


TIFTON—Classic jazz tunes featuring the fabulous trumpet of Dr. Thomas Heflin will highlight the First Tuesday Concert on Oct. 2 at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.

Back for its 17th season, the First Tuesday Concert Series features regional professional artists in five concerts on selected first Tuesdays in the Chapel of All Faiths on the ABAC campus.  All the concerts begin at 7 p.m.  There is no admission cost. 

Heflin is a former ABAC jazz studies professor who will perform with his band members from Atlanta.  They are sure to delight the audience with original arrangements of classic and contemporary jazz tunes. Mason Margut on piano, Tommy Sauter on bass, Dave Potter on drums, and Heflin on trumpet will provide a new definition for the term “jazz standard.”

Other performances in the First Tuesday Concert series include Music Teachers Rock on Nov. 6, Reed Eloquence on Feb. 5, A Clarinetist, a Pianist, and a Singer on March 5, and A Broadway Kind of Mood on April 2.

A Christmas to Treasure will be a special First Tuesday Concert on Dec. 4.  It will be held at the Tift Theatre in downtown Tifton.  Tickets are $10 a person.  All proceeds will benefit music scholarships at ABAC.

Dr. Susan Roe, Head of the Department of Fine Arts and a Professor of Voice, directs the First Tuesday series.  For more information, interested persons can contact Roe at
