Get your tickets!
Once again we are turning the MACC into a hopping New York City Jazz Club with another Jazz Jam!
What happens when you invite 20 area musicians, young and old, some who have never even heard
each other’s names before to play music together spontaneously? An evening of unexpected turns and
musical excitement that can’t be repeated. Throughout the night different combinations of musicians
will be invited onto the stage to play Jazz standards together to the delight of our audience. We’re looking
forward to presenting another amazing night of improvisation, spontaneity, and swing!
