Michigan State University's College of Music will show off its new jazz studies artists in residence program with a performance by the inaugural recipient, saxophonist Antonio Hart, with bassist and jazz program director Rodney Whitaker at 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, at St. Matthew's and St. Joseph's Episcopal Church, 8850 Woodward Ave. Detroit. Admission is $10.

The artist in residence program is funded with a $1 million endowment -- the largest ever for the music college -- from the MSU Credit Union Foundation to bring world-class jazz artists to campus for seminars and intensive sessions with students. Hart has been in East Lansing all week.

Future artists in residence include trumpeter Jon Faddis and drummer Jeff Hamilton during December and April, respectively, with public concerts planned for both artists.
