Happy Birthday, Mr. Brubeck

Brubeck by Tasic Dragan
Eighty-five years young! When he gets behind the piano he appears very young for sure. The Dave Brubeck Quartet will perform The Mass, an original composition by Mr. Brubeck, this Sunday, October 30th, in the The Murphy Fine Arts Center at Morgan State University. Dave will be accompanied by The Baltimore Choral Arts Society and the renowned Morgan State University Choir, all guided by the able baton of my good friend, Choral Arts director Tom Hall.

Mark, there's also Dave Brubeck's choral Pange Lingua Variations, accompanied by orchestra and jazz combo Saturday night at the Kennedy Center, with the Master Chorale of Washington under
Donald McCullough. Promises to be a fascinating weekend for choral, jazz, and early music devotees!!
