Concert Experience

Civic Music hosts Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Sell Out Crowd!

Civic Music Association hosted a sell out crowd for the Preservation Hall Jazz Band on Friday, September 23, 2011!  By the end of the concert, the entire audience in Sheslow Auditorium was up on their feet dancing to the sweet sounds of New Orleans jazz!  Perhaps the most exciting part of the day was observing members of the band as they conducted a Master Class at the Fred & Patty Turner Jazz Center.  A Drake University jazz ensemble worked one-on-one with members of the band while audience members observed and asked questions.  The evening concluded with a Meet the Artist Reception sponsored by KCCK Jazz 88.3 with guests enjoying New Orleans style food, wine and post-concert music by the Ian Copland Trio.  It was the perfect opening to our 2011/12 Season!
