Compaq Big Band is celebrating its 40th year of keeping New England swingin’, with a big band repertoire of classical 30’s and 40’s standards, the best swing charts from the 50’s and the hottest big bands of today. They are joining forces with the New Hampshire Youth Jazz Ensemble to present an amazing night of fast-paced, high-energy, get up on your feet and dance jazz repertoire.
Compaq Big Band is a huge supporter of the Music school mission Changing Lives Through the Power of Learning, Making and Sharing Music. Funds raised from this benefit concert will go towards helping MCMS rebound from a recent setback caused by a burst pipe; eight of the school’s music therapy rooms were flooded causing major damage. As well as to support Music School initiatives and financial assistance program, helping to remove the financial barriers to music education.
