About this event

MCC Instrumental Music Presents MCC Jazz Ensemble & MPJE Jazz Concert!

Nov 23 at 7 pm 

MCC Performing Arts Center

General Public - $8, Staff/Senior (55+)/Military - $7, Students - $6

Jazz Fan you won't want to miss this one at the MCC PAC. The MCC Jazz Ensemble are celebrating the music of Charles Mingus led Paul Brewer. Charles's soulful, blues, and gospel-soaked jazz compositions are considered classics and standards by many of today's jazz historians and musicians. The MPJE Jazz Ensemble will be performing a variety of works providing a wonderful evening of Jazz music sure to entertain.

About the composer: Charles Mingus (1922-1979), a native of Nogales, Arizona, is an important bassist, bandleader, and composer in the history of jazz. Early in his career, he gained attention as a prodigal bassist and then as a bandleader/composer. He was a proponent of collective improvisation and many of his pieces include elements of Avant-Garde and Classical influences. 

We hope you enjoy our selections from the library of Charles Mingus.

Accessible seats are in rows G and Q. Per Maricopa Community College District policy we will be requiring everyone to wear a face covering when inside any of our college facilities. We are also currently running our venues with a reduced capacity to allow for physical distancing.
