Jazz up this weekend with UMST concert
Now that the Olympics are over, you may be looking for ways to enjoy a winter evening right here in Uxbridge. The Uxbridge Music Scholarship Trust (UMST) has a tradition of presenting unique winter concert programs, and this year is no exception.
This Saturday, March 3, UMST is proud to present an Evening of Jazz, a concert of jazz and pop standards featuring some of Uxbridge’s better known musicians, as well as a few new faces.
Featured vocalists Lauren Dillen, Sonia Sabir and Whitney Ross-Barris will be accompanied by musicians Ted Richardson, Dave Chester, Amy Peck, Teagan Larmand, Jordan Aloe and Chris Saunders. Ted Barris will MC the evening.
The concert proceeds will go toward providing UMST scholarships to deserving young people from the Township of Uxbridge who are following their dreams of studying music at a post-secondary level. Since 1998, UMST has provided nearly $70,000 to Uxbridge music students with concerts like this one and through invaluable individual and corporate donations.
The concert takes place on March 3 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Chalmers Presbyterian Church. Tickets at the door: adults $15, students $10, children free.
