Jazz master class and community concert coming to Mohon on April 16
The Mohonasen community is invited to a very special concert on Tuesday, April 16, featuring well-known jazz musicians Joe Abba and the Gen X Quartet. The group will play alongside our talented high school musicians. The performance will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the high school auditorium as part of the Select Concert.
The concert is free to the public.
The four professional musicians will spend the day of the concert working with both middle school and high school students as part of a special jazz workshop. The visit is intended to help students discover and learn about jazz music.
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our students,” said Mohonasen Performing Arts Facilitator Kimberly Kondenar. “To have these musicians share their talents and advice with our growing jazz musicians is very special.
“I would encourage everyone in the community to join us on Tuesday evening to enjoy what will certainly be an exciting night of music at Mohonasen.”
Kondenar said the concert will feature the middle school and high school select ensembles and will end with the high school jazz band in collaboration with Joe Abba and the Gen X Quartet.
A special thank you to the Mohonasen Foundation for providing the funding for this very exciting musical treat.
