Groove out to the MIT Festival Jazz Ensemble

Check out the MIT Festival Jazz Ensemble 50th Anniversary Gala Concert
Music of Herb Pomeroy, John La Porta, and others, with special guest artists, and the world premiere of a piece composed for FJE by Chick Corea.


Seating is open, on a first come-first-serve basis. So, if you want to sit with the group, meet me in the lobby between 6:45-7.

For those who are interested in socializing afterward, there are a number of bars nearby where we can grab a nightcap.

Tickets are FREE (that's right) but you must get them online via Eventbrite (Link at the bottom of this message).

PLEASE ONLY GET TICKETS IF YOU ACTUALLY PLAN TO ATTEND.

If you order tickets, and then wind up not going, you are taking away a seat from someone else.

    Different environment for me in seeing live jazz performed on a stage, in a big band, but the music was great. Also enjoyed the hang out afterward in a more familiar setting :) with the live band playing the soul classics

    I've decided to do something else. Sounds like a great concert. Have fun!

    Hi Frank C!, Mike mentioned that you had an extra ticket and to contact you directly for it. The email is blocked off to you. Is the ticket still available? Thanks.

    Thanks again to all who conmfirmed their attendance.... a few administrative announcements.

    You've probably received a note from MIT which states that seats will only be guaranteed until 7:20 p.m... and that they have a large wait list. So, here's the plan.

    I will be in the lobby at 6:45. I look just like my picture, only I'm even better looking in person :

    At 7:00, we'll move in to the auditorium and get our seats. We will *try* to sit together, with emphasis on the word *try*. It's going to be packed, so there are no guarantees
    If you come late, or can't sit with the group, after the event, for those who are interested, there are a few bars up the street where we can wet our whistle. I'll wait about 10 minutes in the lobby for stragglers, and then we'll make a move.

    Looking foreword to seeing everyone tonight.

      Is it recommended to drive, in which case what about parking, or is public transportation the wiser approach?

      April 22, 2013

  • Jeanne

    I forgot to get my ticket with all the awful happenings near my home in Watertown. Anyone have an extra? Can you please email me?
    THANKS

    We have had many, many people RSVP. BY 8 pm WED I'm going to ask everyone who said yes to A. Confirm that you have your ticket
    B. Confirm that you plan to attend If you don't have a ticket, you won't be able to get in. And sadly, MIT is sold out. An if you do have a ticket, but can't make it, do the right thing and let the nice folks at MIT know. If I don't hear from you by Wed, I'll assume your plans have changed, and remove you from our list if attendees.

    I'm very much looking forward to the concert in a few days. Although going to the MIT campus will be a sad reminder, it's important we enjoy these events -- otherwise, the bad guys win.
