Fall concert 2010

Yes, it’s already fall and the end of Daylight Savings Time, which means that Thanksgiving is almost here, which also means that all our schedules are about get busy. Why not spend your last few, precious hours of free time with us, the MSM Jazz Department? Did you know that our next concert will be on Tuesday, November 16 at 7:30pm in the Moores Opera House? Well then, consider yourself informed.

The MSM Jazz Ensemble and Jazz Orchestra will be featured in what has proven to be a challenging concert program. Seriously, the music is not easy; you try and play a transcription of Michael Brecker’s solo on “Slings and Arrows” (these guys are pretty close). But while the program is challenging, it will definitely not disappoint. These young musicians are a dedicated bunch, and the concert speaks for itself. So, if you’re still not planning on attending, consider yourself unlucky. Click here for ticket information.
