Special Feature: An Evening with Chevy Chase

Chevy Chase Chevy Chase, piano
and the Duke Jazz Ensemble
Friday, April 18, 2003 - Page Auditorium


Chevy Chase, world famous actor and comedian, began life in the spotlight when he joined the Saturday Night Live crew in 1975. He made his first movie hit, Seems Like Old Times, in 1980, and went on to start in classic comedies Caddyshack, National Lampoon's Vacation, and Fletch. Many people don't know that Chase's other love besides acting and comedy is playing jazz piano. He has been emcee at the Boys Harbor jazz concerts for the last two years, and also played some piano at those events. Chevy has played twice at Duke now, and both concerts have been sold-out endeavors. This year the Duke Jazz Ensemble looks forward to joining Chase for his third concert feature as at Duke University.
