Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute’s Associate in Fine Arts – Music Program will once again host the Performing Artist Concert Series this spring with several featured events that are free and open to all students and the general public.
On Wednesday, April 17 at 1 p.m. in the CCC&TI Recital Hall (B-100), CCC&TI’s Caldwell Campus in Hudson will host the Firecracker Jazz Band.
In hundreds of performances since 2003, Firecracker Jazz Band has played everywhere from street corners, speakeasies, jazz festivals from coast to coast, dance halls, Bonaroo and the Kennedy Center. Based in Asheville, N.C., these six musicians revitalize traditional jazz with unbounded energy and pay homage to the pioneers of early 20th Century Jazz, including that of Dixieland and New Orleans. Firecracker Jazz Band strives to carry on the traditions forged by such greats as Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong & Bix Beiderbecke. April is Jazz Appreciate Month and a free Firecracker Jazz Band concert is the perfect way to celebrate.
On Tuesday, April 30 at 12:15 p.m. in the CCC&TI Recital Hall (B-100), on the Caldwell Campus in Hudson, the CCC&TI Chorus will present their Spring Concert. An encore performance will be held on Thursday, May 2 at 12:15pm at St. James Episcopal Church in downtown Lenoir.
All events are free and open to the public.
