COC Jazz Bands to Raise Funds and Spirits with Holiday Concert

The College of the Canyons Jazz Ensemble will perform its Annual Holiday Music Concert on Friday, Dec. 6, 2013 at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center (PAC). 

The bands will be performing popular holiday music in big band style with some help from special guest vocalist, Katherine Lench-Meyering.  

“Katherine is one of our frequent guests and we love performing together,” said KC Manji, the college’s music director. “She is a professional with lots of warm stage presence and a beautiful voice.” 

Raffle tickets will also be sold the night of the concert for the grand prize of a two-hour performance by the jazz band at the winner’s special event of his or her choice. Raffle tickets are $5 or five tickets for $20. 

All proceeds will go towards covering transportation costs for the band’s trip to the 50th Annual Reno Jazz Festival in April. 

In 2007, the band won first place at the festival, which is one of the biggest jazz festivals in the western United States.

The raffle drawing will be held on March 21 when the band performs their Jazz It! concert at the PAC. 

The Annual Holiday Music Concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. 

General admission tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for COC students and senior citizens.
