The Lourie Center in partnership with the Capital City Big Band (CCBB) will present a dance and concert of live music Friday November 9, from 7-9 p.m.
Tickets for the concert are $10 available at the Lourie Center, through the website, or at the door. Reserved seating can be made by ticket purchases of 6 seats or more. Doors open at 6 p.m. Soft drinks will be available for purchase. Guests are welcome to BYOB and snacks. Proceeds from this fundraiser event will go toward operations and Lourie Center programs.
The all-volunteer CCBB will perform two 45-minute sets. The ensemble is comprised of small business owners and a wide variety of professionals. Few are professional musicians, but all are passionate about perpetuating the sound of the Big Band Era. CCBB formed in 1997 under the leadership of USC jazz artist-in-residence Roger Pemberton. Several musicians have been members of the band from its inception; at least five have been playing with CCBB for more than 15 years.
