NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Tickets are still available for the upcoming performance of Grammy award-winning jazz legend Diane Schuur at Stephen F. Austin State University.

The show, slated for 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13, in W.M. Turner Auditorium, is part of the SFA College of Fine Arts' 2013-2014 University Series, "Live Out Loud."

Nicknamed Deedles, Schuur has collaborated with such greats as the Count Basie Orchestra, Ray Charles, B.B. King and trumpeter Maynard Ferguson, and she has performed with José Feliciano at the Vancouver Wine & Jazz Festival. She has been invited to perform at The White House on multiple occasions and continues to tour and perform at major concert halls and venues around the world.

Prior to the concert, there will be a 7 p.m. informative talk about the artist and her music presented by Dr. Deb Scott, associate professor of trombone and jazz studies, in Griffith Gallery, which is located across the hall from Turner Auditorium. The audience is invited back to the gallery for a post-performance reception to honor the event's corporate sponsor, Nacogdoches Medical Center.
