Noel Freidline Quintet to Aid UNF Programs

Noel Freidline will return to UNF on Jan. 30-31 with his quintet to hold a master class for music students and to perform with the UNF Jazz Ensemble I in a concert to benefit the University’s Steinway Piano Campaign. A UNF alumnus, Freidline will spend Friday, Jan. 30, with the University music students discussing topics such as the business side of the music industry and how to promote your music.
