Regional Center for Arts to hold jazz concerts

The Music Department at Cooperative Educational Services’ (C.E.S.) Regional Center for the Arts (RCA) invites the public to attend jazz concerts on Wednesday, Dec. 16 and Thursday, Dec. 17.

Both performances begin at 7:30 p.m. in the RCA Main Theater located at 23 Oakview Drive in Trumbull. Tickets are $5 at the door, general seating, with a cap of $20 per family. All proceeds support RCA programs.

The performances will feature students from Bridgeport, Fairfield, Monroe, Newtown, Redding, Shelton, Stratford, and Trumbull performing musical selections by Sonny Rollins, George Harrison, Cole Porter, Gillian Welch, Sergei Prokofiev, Frank Zappa, and many other renowned artists.

“The fact that most of these students demonstrate musicianship far beyond their years is nothing less than awe-inspiring,” said RCA Principal Dr. Mark Ribbens. “I know who our kids are and how hard they work, and I am filled with pride that we can call them RCA students.”
