NCJO’s April 2016 Hiatus

The Minnesota Music CafeAs we’ve mentioned here before, the NCJO always plays the second Tuesday of each month at the Minnesota Music Café. Importantly, however, we won’t be doing that this month to make way for the emerging artist series featuring students from the McNally Smith College of Music.

McNally Smith’s concerts take place April 11-14 at the MMC. Get all the details here. NCJO will be back at the MMC on Tuesday, May 10.

In February, the NCJO had a great time accompanying vocalist Tony DeMarco on some of his original tunes. We hope to perform with Tony again soon — watch this space!

This month, on Tuesday, March 8, 2016, we’ll be hitting the MMC stage again to play our regular date of original big-band compositions. Come out and join us! The music starts at 7pm.

NCJO Annual Christmas Concert!

The phrase, “It’s that time of year again,” may mean lots of things, but in this case it means — excitingly — that the Nova Contemporary Jazz Orchestra’s Christmas Concert is coming up.

Our concert will take place on Sunday, December 20th, at 4pm at the Saint James Lutheran Church in St. Paul, and it’s guaranteed to help put you in the spirit.

This fine and seasonal set of music will feature many of Nova’s holiday favorites along the vocal stylings of Tony DeMarco. Our famed bassist, Pete Karstad, will also sing a Christmas classic that’s sure to be familiar to everyone. Coffee, punch, and pie following the concert. Please join us!
