Fort Morgan, CO. The Center for Arts and Community Enrichment (CACE) announces a joint concert featuring performances by both the MCC Jazz Ensemble and the MCC Platte Valley Band. This special spring performance is scheduled for Sunday, May 4 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium at the Fort Morgan Middle School. The concert is free and open to the public.
The MCC Jazz Ensemble, lead under the direction of Rob Pflug, performs a wide range of repertoire including music of the 1920’s—which the MCC Jazz Ensembles calls their Ragtime Orchestra. The Ensemble’s Big Band will also be playing songs such as “Out of the Doghouse” and “Hot Toddy” in addition to others.
The MCC Platte Valley Band, directed by Chuck Morgan, will feature several musical delights including “Washington Post March” and “Overture on a Shaker Tune” in addition to the finale which will feature an all group rendition of “Blue Moon.”
Both performance groups are part of Morgan Community College’s Center for Arts and Community Enrichment. For more information about the bands or other CACE programs, please visit www.MorganCC.edu/CACE for a full listing of events.
