Bring Your Kids to a Community Concert at Count Basie this Wednesday Evening
If you have kids who love music and the performing arts, bring them to this special concert -- tickets only $5!
The historic Count Basie Theatre, which is actually a non-profit organization dedicated to arts education and outreach, is celebrating all of their music education programs with a special concert.
The Basie recently announced that the Monmouth Conservatory, which has taught students to perform classical music for more than 50 years, will become part of the Basie's family of musical performance programs.
This Wednesday evening, May 3rd, at 6:30 pm, a special concert will feature all of The Basie musical programs as the student artists perform on stage: Conservatory students, the Jazz Arts Academy (my son's in that one), Rockit! rock music students, Phoenix Productions theater group students, and the Count Basie Theatre Voices vocal ensemble.
Tickets for this show are only $5 each, and all proceeds and donations will assist the Count Basie Theatre in establishing a classical music scholarship.
As part of the newest Monmouth Conservatory program, classes will be held for all aspects of classical music, including studies in piano, violin, viola, cello, string bass, guitar, harp, voice, flute, clarinet, oboe, sax, trumpet, trombone, organ, harpsichord, recorder, lute and drums under the Basei's stewardship. The conservatory will then be housed on the Basie campus once the current $20 million expansion is complete.
The May 3rd concert will also celebrate Vladislav and Irina Kovalsky of the Monmouth Conservatory.
