The South Puget Sound Community College (SPSCC) Music Department will be performing three concerts featuring SPSCC students this March at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts Main Stage: Swing into Spring, Folksong, and Vows & Chorales.
On March 14 at 7:30 p.m., the SPSCC Jazz Band, joined by the Ali Jackson Trio, presents an evening concert featuring both large-group and small-group ensembles performing selections showcasing songs to help you swing into spring!
The SPSCC Choirs present an eclectic evening of folk music from different traditions, including songs from the African, Asian, European, and Pacific Island diasporas in Folksong. The concert will take place on March 17 at 7:30 p.m.
The SPSCC Symphony Orchestra presents Vows & Chorales on March 18 at 7:30 p.m. To open the concert, members of the orchestra will perform Bach chorales in small groups. The concert will feature Antonín Dvorák’s cheerfully optimistic Symphony No. 8, which depicts bird calls, tranquil landscapes, a small village band, and several Bohemian folk dances and melodies. Also featured is the first SPSCC student to solo with the orchestra: Bassist Jordan Pilla will take center stage, playing Max Bruch’s Kol Nidrei.
Admission for each show is a suggested $15 donation at the door. The Music Department concerts are sponsored in part by R.L. Ray Violin Shop. More information is available on the college’s Arts & Entertainment page.
