***Special Show Announcement***
This concert marks the eagerly-awaited debut performance of Scott Stansfield’s “Melting Pot Big Band.” When Scott decided last year to work toward achieving his lifelong dream of producing a CD of big band music, he assembled a band of some of the area’s finest players, all pulled from the various other local bands Scott has played with over the years (hence the “Melting Pot” moniker). After months of rehearsing and several highly-satisfying and successful studio sessions, the band ended up deciding that they were simply having too much fun, and the music was too good, to just let the band dissolve once the recording sessions were completed. They are sharing their music-making in what they hope is but the first of many public performances.
Here you can find information about the program, lessons, ensembles, and where to go for more information. We
hope you make the most of your musical talents during your college years.
