Lorain County Community College’s division of Arts and Humanities will host a Civic Jazz Band concert featuring big band sound led by Jeffrey Meyers at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Stocker Arts Center’s Hoke Theatre.
The “Big Band” is the jazz version of the classical symphony orchestra. It is the vehicle composers use for their grandest musical statements. The big band compositions of Duke Ellington, Charlie Mingus and others changed the musical landscape of jazz. The concert will follow the development of the big band, from non-existence, to its standing today as the grandest of jazz ensembles.
Tickets for the jazz band are $9 for general admission; $8 for LCCC students, staff and seniors 65 and up; or $7 for groups of 15 of more. For tickets, call the Stocker Box Office at (440) 366-4040. To learn more, visit http://www.lorainccc.edu/stocker/civic-jazz-band.
