8/21 FREE JAZZ CONCERT!
Event has passed
Novel Jazz at St. Andrews Village 2:00pm Tuesday, August 21st
The Novel Jazz Septet will be in concert featuring music of the iconic Duke Ellington and his equally iconic musical collaborator, Billy Strayhorn. Novel Jazz is a Maine-based group, now in their 14th season of concerts around Maine and New England. They’ll perform standard tunes from the Ellington/Strayhorn repertoire plus newly arranged compositions that they have unearthed in the Ellington Archives of the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington D.C., some of which have not been heard in decades. The band has rearranged these pieces for the septet, dusted them off and given them a 21st century sound all of their own.
The concert is free and the Village welcomes all to attend.
For planning purposes anyone planning to attend is asked to RSVP by calling the Village at 633-0920. Light refreshments will be served.
