Jazz at the MACC: Jazz Jam
By popular demand, once again, we’re turning the MACC into a New York City Jazz Club with another Jazz Jam. Of all the shows we did last year, this one may have been my favorite! We invited 20 area musicians to play music together spontaneously. Many of them hadn’t played with each other, most of them hadn’t even heard each other’s names before that night. Throughout the night we cycled musicians, in different combinations onto the stage to play Jazz standards together with roaring applause following every performance!
Based on the reactions of the musicians and you, the audience, this may have been the favorite show of the season. Last year was amazing, wait til you see this year! We’re looking forward to presenting another amazing night of improvisation, spontaneity, and swing! See you there!
