Boston’s best jazz musicians perform original works in West Concord
Free Faculty Concert Series Continues Nov. 5 with Jazz Quintet Featuring Concord Conservatory Faculty
CCM's Kick-off performance for our 2012 Faculty Concert Series.
On Monday, November 5 at 7 p.m. the school’s performance space at 1317 Main St in the West Concord Union Church will vibrate with the sounds of original works from some of the Conservatory’s accomplished jazz instructors.
Featured in the concert will be CCM Faculty members Ehud Ettun, bass, and Jorge Perez-Albela, drums. Also joining them will be Kevin Harris, piano, Roni Eytan, harmonica, and Lihi Haruvi, saxophone.
Lead and formed by Ettun, bassist and composer, this talented group will play many original works composed by the band members as well as standards from the jazz repertoire. “This is a special concert,” says Ettun. “As a bassist, I get to meet a lot of different musicians every day, but this quintet is my opportunity to put together organic sounds and rhythms with some of the most talented artists I know.”
Providing this free concert series is part of CCM’s broader mission to deliver high quality music education to the community. “In addition to weekly instrument lessons, we aim to give our students music education in the broad meaning,” adds Ettun. “This includes opportunities to participate in jazz combos and string ensembles, as well as attending a concert such as this. All of these are ways of inspiring students as well as other community members to provide deeper and wider music education.”
The concert series is made possible in part by the generous funding from Newbury Court in Concord. For more information about the CCM Free Concert Series please call CCM at 978-369-0010.
