VJC Winter Performance

February 18 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Valley Jazz Cooperative Winter Performance

The Valley Jazz Cooperative’s three jazz ensembles offer their Winter Performance in Ravenscroft Hall, their first VJC concert of the year. Appearing on the program are the Cerulean and Indigo Big Bands, led by Russell Schmidt, and the Sapphire Big Band, under the direction of Paul Brewer. VJC student ensembles perform a mix of repertoire by historically significant composers such as Duke Ellington, Bill Holman, Thad Jones, and Mary Lou Williams, and works by modern-day writers including Alan Baylock, Dave Rivello, Ellen Rowe, and Maria Schneider.

The Valley Jazz Cooperative was founded in 2016 and is an educational outreach of MSW Ministries. Instruction is focused on expanding the creativity of VJC members by developing improvisation skills and learning the language of jazz. The program is offered free of charge to eligible, committed, passionate music students (grades 8-12).

Lobby doors open at 2:00 p.m., and Ravenscroft Hall doors open at 2:40 p.m. (following a soundcheck by the students). No food or drink is permitted inside Ravenscroft Hall.

Cost for this event is $10.00 (adults) & $5.00 (for students). Parking is free and abundant on-site at Ravenscroft. Grab your tickets now!
