The Rock Valley College (RVC) Music Department, along with the RVC Foundation, are sponsoring a jazz concert at Gloria Dei Church, 4700 Augustana Road, at 7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 28. The concert is a memorial to Kurt Boucek, who taught as an adjunct music instructor at RVC for a number of years before passing away suddenly in July.
A free-will offering will be accepted with the proceeds from the concert going toward the establishment of a music scholarship in Boucek’s name.
Performers will include faculty, staff, students and administrators from RVC, as well as jazz performers who worked with and knew Boucek, led by Ken Stein.
