The Music Program at Saint Mary's College will present its fall 2021 instrumental music concert titled "Mystic Embers''. The Saint Mary's Instrumental Ensemble will be conducted by Dr. Sixto F. Montesinos and will feature music for strings, brass, and woodwinds with electroacoustic accompaniment written by Jennifer E. Rose, Steve Bryant, Johan Sebastian Bach and Astor Piazzola. This concert will also feature the swingin' Saint Mary's Jazz Band and Jazz Choir, conducted by Bob Farrington and Dr. Julie Ford. These fantastic musicians will get your feet tapping with an exciting mix of swing, latin, and rock styles from various composers, such as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Lee Morgan, and Henry Mancini. This incredible event will be held in LeFevre Theatre, and will follow Covid-19 safety protocols for audience members and performers.
