On Thursday, November 11, Milton’s jazz musicians will celebrate legendary jazz saxophonist Cannonball Adderley and hold a tribute concert in Kellner’s King Theatre.
“Cannonball’s playing was uplifting and full of joy and positivity,” says music faculty member, Bob Sinicrope. “Originally a high school music teacher in Florida, his talent attracted Miles Davis to hire him which launched his career as a player and eventually a leader of his own band. His group offered a wide variety of jazz styles in their performances including soul jazz, bossa nova, rock, and bebop.”
The performance will feature a woodwind quartet, a string quintet, and tunes performed by students from six of Milton’s jazz groups. Music department faculty will also take the stage to perform with two special guest artists: trombonist Michael Sabin ’16 and saxophonist Jim Repa.
All parents are welcome to attend the concert, which begins at 7 p.m. in King Theatre on November 11.
