Event Description/Details: Mesa Community College Band, Community & Orchestra Concert Presents Odds and Ends

Feb 27, 2024 at 7 pm at MCC Performing Arts Center

This concert is going to be an evening of great works for Band and Orchestra that just don’t share any common theme to one another. Hence, we’re calling it our “Odds & Ends” Concert! The MCC Community Band is opening up the show with a fantastic J.P. Sousa march, Hands Across the Sea, followed by A Longford Legend, which is a collection of Irish Street Ballades, and then concluding with a not-so-well-known piece by Alfred Reed entitled Alleluia! Laudamus Te, which is joyous and powerful, and will leave you wanting more…….which is good, because next up is the MCC Concert Band! They will be opening with the first movement of Richard Strauss’ Concerto No. 1 for French Horn (arranged for Symphonic Band), which will be featuring MCC student, Cole Evans on French Horn! Next is a new selection that the MCC Concert Band just presented at the AMEA State Conference in a new music reading session called Sailing with Whales by Rossano Gallante. This piece will take you on a journey in search of, and then traveling alongside the mighty Orca Whale on a wild journey within their natural habitat. Next, the band will explore the beautiful, rich sounds that form the “Love Duet” from Howard Hanson’s Merry Mount Suite. There’s only one way to finish off a collection like this….a March! But not another patriotic march…..but a Circus March!!! The Concert Band will conclude with Karl L. King’s classic, Barnum and Bailey’s Favorite!

The "Odds & Ends”continue with our amazing Community Orchestra who will be performing for you the Overture from Otto Nicolai’s opera, The Merry Wives of Windsor, and the Concerto for Alto Trombone and Orchestra featuring MCC student, Chanson Peck! The orchestra will also be premiering the second movement of a new work by MCC student trumpet player and composer, Jacob Bozicevic entitled An American Tapestry. There’s only one way to bring an evening of musical "Odds & Ends” like this to a triumphant close, and that’s with the orchestra’s performance of the Berceuse and Finale from Igor Stravinsky’s classic Firebird Suite. Come out and support the great things that are happening here in the world of MCC Instrumental Music!!!

Desert Echoes Flute Project Concert: For the Birds

Event Description/Details: MCC Music Department present Desert Echoes Flute Project Concert: For the Birds

March 1, 2024 at 7:30 pm , MCC Performing Arts Center

Join the flutists of Desert Echoes Flute Project in a fun and exciting concert as they celebrate birds. From the opening piccolo duo, Mimic, by Nicole Chamberlain to the humorous closing piece, The Bird Song, by Michael Davis featuring vocalist Stephanie Sadownik lamenting “I wonder why the flutist always has to be the bird”, this concert is for the birds.

Composers have been inspired by birds and imitated bird song for centuries. Perhaps one of the best-known examples is the Goldfinch Concerto by Antonio Vivaldi. There are a flock of other pieces on the program: the happy songbirds heralding spring with all its festiveness in the first movement of Vivaldi’s La Primavera featuring flute soloist Alan J. Tomasetti, The Turtledove in the flashy piccolo solo by Eugène Damaré with soloist Linda Bailey, the lovely Blue Bird from Three Korean Folk Songs arranged by Kelly Via, the delightful and elegant Dance of the Swans from the famous Tchaikovsky ballet Swan Lake, the trills and grace notes of canary chicks enclosed in shells in Ballet of the Unhatched Chicks from Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky, and L’Oiseau des Bois by Franz Doppler featuring Amber Walker as the bird (flute) soloist. The DEF Chamber Choir flutists depict an aviary with Bird House by Efraín Amaya and the flutists of DEFproject are Birds of a Feather in Eva Young’s lyrical, aggressive, and rhythmic piece for flute choir. The program wouldn’t be complete without a tribute by the Community Flute Choir to the unofficial mascot of the DEF Project with the playful Tufted Puffin depicted in a movement from Songs of the Ocean by Ryohei Hirose.

Accessible seats are in rows G and Q. Assigned seating event

Bite of Reality Budgeting Simulation

Event Description/Details: Bite of Reality is an app-based budgeting simulation where students are given a persona that includes what their job is, their monthly net income, family members, their credit score, how much they pay monthly for their student loans or credit card debt. Then they need to make choices at different stations for housing, food, furnishings, transportation, child care, and more, all the while trying to live within their means (and not give in to the up-selling). This simulation provides a safe environment for students to experience real-life budgeting, make mistakes, and learn about money management. This event was held in during the summer semester and all of the students who completed the survey said that they enjoyed the experience, and some of them said they want to go through it again!
Volunteer Description/Details: We are in need of assistance to run stations for the event. If you are able to help, you would be trying to sell, or even up-sell, the product(s) for the station (just like what happens in real-life).

Everything in the Garden

Event Location: MCC Theatre
Start Date: Multiple dates, please see details below in Volunteer Description/Details
Event Frequency: Multiple dates availableEverything in the Garden Image
Start Time: Multiple time slots
Your Partner Agency: MCC Theatre
Event Description/Details: As always with Mr. Albee there is a theme beneath the surface, in this case the corruption of money and the rottenness of this bigoted exurbia where conformity to its illiberal standards and its hypocritical show of respectability is all that counts. The scene is the suburban home of Jenny and Richard. The only thing that seems to stand in the way of their happiness is a lack of money. The action starts in an entertaining comedy of manners style. Then abruptly there enters a Mrs. Toothe in the menacing and fascinating person of Beatrice Straight who offers Jenny the opportunity to make more money than they have ever had, to buy a greenhouse and all the other luxuries that they require for their garden and their lives. Richard's realization that their newfound money is being earned by his wife's prostitution comes almost simultaneously with the return of their fourteen-year-old son from school and a champagne cocktail party which they are giving to impress their country club friends. As a result, his horror, disgust and rage has to be kept under wraps in order to keep up essential appearances until tragedy strikes, and Richard realizes that the assembled wives are all involved and their husbands are aware and condoning. More than that, they are prepared not merely to justify but defend the ends through which their means are attained—and the devastated Richard, left in agonized despair by the ironic events that charge the final moments of the play, must face the fact of his own share in their communal guilt.

Everything in the Garden is MCC Theatre’s annual student design show featuring student work from our award winning design program.
