The MCCC Chorus, directed by Pamela Sharples, will perform on Tuesday, Dec. 14 at 7:30 p.m. Consisting of music majors and students from across the campus, this diverse group will perform choral works by Orlando di Lasso, Mozart, Handel and contemporary works including a recently composed piece for male voices by music faculty member Dr. Mark Jurcisin.

The group will also perform the Hallelujah Chorus and invite audience members to sing along. Several vocal music majors will perform solo works.

Directed by Professor James Kelly, the MCCC Jazz Band will present a varied and exciting show on Wednesday, Dec. 15 at 8 p.m. The repertoire will range from Van Morrison’s perennial classic, Moondance, to Dexter Gordon’s hard bop excursion, Cheesecake, to an “out of this world” version of Fly Me to the Moon. Other selections will include Pat Metheny’s haunting ballad, Always and Forever, and a funky reworking of Thelonious Monk’s be-bop classic, Well You Needn’t. All selections will feature standout improvisations by jazz students, who will be performing in small groups as well as in the full band.
