Mercer County Community College's Jazz Band and Chorus will present Spring Concerts in May at Kelsey Theatre on the West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. Admission is free, and the college's Music Department invites the public to join these celebrations.

The Mercer County Community College Chorus will perform its spring concert "It Might as Well Be Spring" on Tuesday, May 5 at 7:30 p.m., directed by Pamela Sharples.

Composed not only of music majors, but also of students from across the campus, the Chorus will perform choral works from a variety of musical styles, including songs by Cole Porter, Josquin des Près, and a magical medley from Stephen Schwartz' Godspell. Additionally, students from the MCCC Jazz Band and vocal performance majors will be featured.

The Mercer County Community College Jazz Band, directed by Professor James Kelly, will present a varied and exciting program for this year's Spring Concert on Tuesday, May 12, at 8 p.m. Repertoire will range from the early New Orleans jazz of Louis Armstrong to the 1970s funk grooves of Tower of Power. Selections will include the 1927 classic, "Potato Head Blues," swing era gems such as "All of Me" and "On Green Dolphin Street," ending with the answer to the eternal question, "What is Hip?" All selections will feature improvisations by jazz students, who will be performing in small group settings as well as in the full band.
