Presented by Music at St. Alban's
This is a virtual event taking place online. Check below for details on how to access and/or register.

At 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 24, Music at St. Alban’s (M@SA) will launch its 2021-22 season with concert featuring the Noel Freidline Jazz Quartet—a live concert with a live streaming option. The program is entitled “Swinging Sophistication: Tribute to the Modern Jazz Quartet,” a well-known combo famous in its heyday (1950s-70s) for their complex, iconic compositions and arrangements and for their elegant presentation that retained a strong blues feel. Freidline has transcribed a full program of the group’s arrangements, much of which has never been published. Thus, hearing Freidline’s group, which for this program will include the well-known vibraphonist Jon Metzger, will be much like seeing Lazarus rise from the dead. As a highly recommended bonus, at 2:00 p.m. DavidsonLearns will conduct a discussion and demonstrations with members of the visiting quartet—so come early! (Consult www.davidsonlearns.org/spotlight-events for latest information about this special event.)

M@SA is committed to protecting the health of attendees and performers. Fans attending the live concert will need to adhere to Covid protocols in effect at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, which are subject to change. At time of writing they include the requirement that all attendees wear a mask and sign a roster upon entry should a need for contact tracing arise. In addition, M@SA would greatly appreciate attendees’ having been fully vaccinated. For people wary of joining a large gathering, M@SA will stream this concert live. For information about potential changes to the church’s Covid protocols and about the streaming option, please consult M@SA’s website: www.musicatstalbansdavidson.org. This event is made possible, in part, with funding from the ASC. M@SA is a 501[c]3 non-profit organization.
