Trent Univer­sity is or­ga­niz­ing a con­cert at Sadleir House early next month to hon­our 100 years since the birth of Amer­i­can jazz pi­anist and com­poser Th­elo­nious Monk. The con­cert will be Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. in the din­ing hall at Sadleir House and will fea­ture some of Monk’s most cel­e­brated com­po­si­tions – as well as mu­sic com­posed for Monk and orig­i­nal poetry writ­ten in his hon­our, too. Gen­eral ad­mis­sion is $10 ($5 for stu­dents) and there will be bar ser­vice. The show will fea­ture pi­anist Biff Han­non’s trio will per­form, in the trio for­mat that Monk pre­ferred – and pos­si­bly some guests will join in. Trent Prof. Michael Morse will lead his New Dig­nity of Labour En­sem­ble. Poet Ian McLach­lan will join them for a poetry-mu­sic fu­sion en­ti­tled Round Mid­night (In the Hil­ton Ball­room), writ­ten es­pe­cially for the con­cert. The Trent Univer­sity Jazz Band will play some num­bers in Monk’s spirit. Monk was born Oct. 10, 1917, in North Carolina.
