Fort Morgan, CO. 04/11/14. The Morgan Community College Jazz Ensemble has been invited to perform as the featured artist in the City of Brighton’s “Fine Arts at Four” Concert Series. The performance is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 27 at the First Presbyterian Church, 510 S. 27th Ave., Brighton, CO.
The MCC Jazz Ensemble performs a wide range of repertoire and, by request, the Fine Arts at Four concert will feature music of the 1920’s—which the MCC Jazz Ensembles calls their Ragtime Orchestra.
The ensemble’s Ragtime Orchestra group, which performed at the State’s Capitol last spring, will be playing the hits of yesteryear, including such favorites as: “Here Comes My Ball and Chain,” “Never Swat A Fly,” “Willie the Weeper,” and “Bell Hoppin’ Blues.”
The concert series is free and open to the public.
If the metropolitan area is too far to travel, come to another MCC Jazz Ensemble event scheduled for Thursday, April 17 in the Fort Morgan Middle School auditorium at 7:00 p.m. The evening’s concert will feature performances by both the Middle School and High School jazz bands, in addition to the MCC Jazz Ensemble’s Big Band.
“It will give students a chance to see their teachers performing, as well as an opportunity to encourage kids to continue playing their instruments beyond their school years,” says MCC Jazz Ensemble Director Ron Pflug.
