Also an in-demand studio trumpeter, Kenny has recorded jingles for dozens of commercials. The University of Scranton Jazz Band is a 28 member ensemble of big band style instrumentation, made up of University of Scranton student musicians from majors spanning the curriculum. They perform five or more times per year, and the majority of their performances are open to the public, free of admission charge, and often feature a nationally or internationally renowned guest soloist.
