Jazz multiplied at BAC on Friday
The Mile High-Carson High Jazz Extravaganza presents big-band jazz times two when the Carson High Jazz Band and the Mile High Jazz Band present their seventh annual joint concert at 8 p.m. Friday. The concert is a benefit for the Carson High Band programs.
The extravaganza, sponsored by the MHJB Assoc., Brewery Arts Center, and the Carson City Band Association (Band Boosters), will include the bands, vocalist Sheryl Adams, combo performances, and a grand finale combining the forces of both big bands.
“I am pleased that the MHJB has been asked to support the high school jazz band again,” said David Bugli, MHJB leader and pianist. “The high school music ensembles are talented and goal-oriented, and they deserve the community’s help and encouragement. I’m looking forward to another round of intergenerational musical swing!”
Tickets prices are $12 general admission, $10 students and seniors, and $5 for youth age 12 and under. Tickets can be purchased in advance from Carson High Band members or at the door. For information, call the MHJB at 775-883-4154 or see milehighjazz.com.
