You definitely can’t accuse the EWU music department of doing the same ol’ same ol’ with its next show. It’s a collaboration of the school’s Symphony Orchestra and Jazz Ensemble on a piece never performed in the United States — until now. Scheherajazz is a unique classical/jazz interpretation of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s 1888 orchestral masterpiece Scheherazade. In the 1950s, American band leader Skip Martin created the mashup (before that was a thing) and while Scheherajazz was recorded for an album, it was never performed live until someone transcribed it from those recordings in 2016. The University of Bern did it first, but EWU brings the U.S. premiere to Spokane Thursday.

Thu, May 31 at 7:30 pm • $5-$20; free/EWU students • Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox • 1001 W. Sprague • foxtheaterspokane.com • 624-1200
