Please join us for the first-ever performance by the Valley Jazz Cooperative Alumni Band!

Saturday, July 9, at 7:00 pm, Ravenscroft Hall presents members of the VJC Alumni Band, under the direction of Russell Schmidt. The ensemble features participants from nearly every iteration of the VJC over the years, with members from the very first group (the 2016 East Valley Jazz Cooperative) performing side by side with participants from the most recent session (the 2022 VJC Indigo Big Band).

The 13-piece ensemble will perform music by Al Cobine, Bill Holman, Gerry Mulligan, and Oliver Nelson, as well as a new composition by Alumni Band member Theo Strich.

The Valley Jazz Cooperative was founded six years ago as an educational outreach of MSW Ministries. Visit www.ValleyJazz.org to learn more about VJC programs and activities.

Lobby doors open at 6:00 pm for this event; Ravenscroft Hall doors do not open until 6:30 pm. This performance is free and no reservations are required.
