Since 1994, Colorado Springs Conservatory founder and director Linda Weise has been shepherding aspiring young local musicians and thespians into the finest performing arts colleges around the country. On Friday night, you can get a sneak peek at some of the musicians before they become the Bon Jovis, Stan Getzes and Yo-Yo Mas of tomorrow as the conservatory's Advanced Student Jazz Ensemble transforms the recital area of their student lounge into a night club for Jazz Nite. Bring the beat era back, cat, and skat on over to the club, bub. The $5 cover gets you soda pop and snacks, and all proceeds go to the scholarship fund. Sounds like funds!
