Kadanz Jazz event, this Friday Aug 19th and Sept 18th
Kadanz Jazz is returning to the Somerville Community Growing Center at 22 Vinal Avenue this Friday, August 19th, 7-8:30pm! After needing to reschedule from earlier in the month, they are ready to entertain you again. Welcome back Mark Torgerson, Galen Willett, Cornell Coley, Utar Artun and special guest Akili Jamal Haynes on trumpet and percussion! Grab your chair or blanket, a picnic, non-alcoholic beverages and enjoy an evening of free music in a garden setting.
Choral Fellows & Scholars Program now accepting applications. The First Baptist Church of Medford.
From Dr. Holly Zagaria, Music Director at The First Baptist Church of Medford (MA):
The First Baptist Church of Medford uses section leaders, and we are looking for people to fill these roles. We have openings for alto, tenor and bass — below is the flyer — and the Church hopes to have these parts covered for September, if possible! 🎶
Not only do we have our fabulous accompanist and guru of all things music, Dr. Holly Zagaria, at the organ (as Music Director of The First Baptist Church of Medford). But we also have the three wonderful Stanley sisters — Sam, Emily, and Julia — singing the offertory hymn (at approximately 42:40).
This summer, I have been a part of Malden Summer Community Theatre and we are performing the musical “Songs for a New World!” The show is on Friday, August 12 and Saturday, August 13, both at 7:00pm at Malden High School Jenkins Auditorium. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for general admission. I have a couple of solos and I am singing with the ensemble! I also have attached the poster with information on the show.
Please feel free to share this with anyone you know who may be interested; we are trying to promote the show as much as possible!
If you missed Mark Togerson in Medford — as I did — you can catch the more experimental version of Mark’s bands, known as Kadanz Jazz, outdoors at the Growing Center in Somerville on Thursday, August 4th at 7pm.
Here’s a video from last year’s concert. Thanks to Lisa Brukilacchio, for sharing this.
