This week: July 12 at McGrath & July 16 at Ellis

This week, Ryan Smith–perhaps best known as a jazz musician–will be featured on a classical saxophone solo and the band will present “Roma,” a challenging piece by Valerie Coleman that mixes styles from Latin jazz to Turkish music.

Other selections this week include an arrangement from Disney’s “Obi Wan Kenobi” series, a Duke Ellington medley, and Leroy Anderson’s “Belle of the Ball.”

The music starts at 7:30 p.m. on both Wednesday and Sunday nights with the first concert at the McGrath Amphitheatre and the second at Ellis Park. If you can’t attend in person, watch the livestream at
