Iowa Memorial Union to feature comedy, music and movies

IOWA CITY, Iowa ­ The University of Iowa Union Programming Board is presenting a wide variety of entertainment in November, ranging from comedy to concerts.

Here is the schedule of events:
--The Vanguard Jazz Collective will perform in the Wheel Room Thursday, Nov. 5 at 8 p.m. and again on Thursday, Nov. 19. The collective is made up of 18 eastern Iowa musicians ranging in age from 18 to 86 and features improvisational soloists and a jazz vocalist.
--Jen Cohen performs Saturday, Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. in the Wheel Room. The singer from Nashville varies her music styles, but stays close to the folk/pop style. Cohen appeals to many ages and was voted one of the top four college-touring pop/rock bands.
