We’ve got a great Christmas concert coming up! Mike Krikava gives all the details below:
Greetings Nova Jazz friends,
The Nova Jazz Orchestra is set to release our 12th CD of all-original music. This release is being timed with the holidays so we will do a combination CD Release and Holiday concert on Sunday, December 22, at 4pm. The location is Saint James Lutheran Church, 460 West Annapolis Street, West St. Paul, MN. The concert is free of charge.
This concert will be very special. In addition to some holiday favorites, Nova is releasing its CD “Concerto Nova & the Jazz Music of W.A. Mathieu.” The Concerto is a six-movement work that combines elements of Jazz and Classical to form something that is entirely new. We recorded the Concerto live at Saint James back in April and the piece is made all the better for the stunning acoustics of that room.
I hope you can come out to hear Nova!

Hey everybody, here’s an important message — exactly one day before the start of the World Series, the Nova Contemporary Jazz Orchestra will play Jazz Central Studios in Minneapolis. It’s simple, really: jazz before baseball.

Well, despite what the picture might suggest, we can’t promise barbecue. Not yet anyway — but we can promise jazz for this month of September, 2013. Sure, the days may be dwindling down to a precious few, but you can still come out, hang out, and enjoy the music with us.

The Nova Contemporary Jazz Orchestra plays Jazz Central tomorrow night! (Which is to say, August 27, 2013.) Why? Well, tomorrow is the 4th Tuesday of the month, and Nova always plays at Jazz Central on the 4th Tuesday of the month. Please see our previous post for more. The music starts at 8:30, and we’ll be playing till 11. Don’t miss it — we’ll see everyone there.

Our maiden voyage is this Tuesday, July 30, at 8pm. What are we talking about? Well, we’ve spent months looking for a new venue, and now the Nova Contemporary Jazz Orchestra has found a super solid one: it’s Jazz Central in Minneapolis. Our night will be the fourth Tuesday of each month. We’re really excited to be playing Jazz Central, which features great music all month. Jazz Central is located at 407 Central Ave SE. Minneapolis, MN 55414. Be there, and be the shape that suits you.
