Edmonton – MacEwan University’s Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications is proud to announce the first two shows of the 2016/2017 Music Season. The MacEwan Big Band starts things off December 5, and the Showcase Bands will take the stage the following evening on December 6. Both shows begin at 7:30 p.m. at the John L. Haar Theatre, 10045 – 156 Street.  

The prestigious Big Bands, directed by Raymond Baril and Jerrold Dubyk, launch the season with their energy and sound. This powerful fusion of Latin, funk and jazz styles with colourful and breathtaking saxophones, trombones, trumpets and rhythm sections will appeal to all music fans.
