Auburn Knights Orchestra alumnus Sonny Harris has been selected for induction into the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony will take place on September 26, 2008 at Brock Hall, Wright Center, Samford University, Birmingham, Alabama. The time is 6:30 p.m. for the reception and 7:30 p.m. for the program. Tickets are $35 each. Reserved seats are available for those who wish to order tickets via credit card or check to:

Brock Hall is the home of SuperJazz Band, Birmingham’s premier big band, which has featured Sonny Harris since its inception in the 70’s. This band performs four concerts each year. Acoustics are very good at Brock hall, and seating accomodates 300.
Sonny’s nomination is well overdue, and it’s hoped that some Auburn Knights will be able to attend this ceremony!
