Celebrate Mardi Gras early with Northern Virginia’s own Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra in Carnival Celebration: Music from New Orleans to Rio to the Islands. Dress up in your Mardi Gras beads, don a mask, and enjoy a lively night of pulsating rhythms, upbeat parade brass, and plenty of improvisational jazz.
The tour guides for this concert will be George Mason University’s very own Mason Jazz Faculty: Professor Graham Breedlove from Lafayette, Louisiana; Argentinian Dr. Juan Megna by way of Sao Paulo, Brazil; and Professor Victor Provost, born and raised in St. John, Virgin Islands.
This performance is appropriate for all ages.
