CCM Jazz celebrates 50 years of the Rolling Stones in a rocking tribute concert on Sept. 29.
CCM’s Jazz Ensemble and Jazz Lab Band perform a much-anticipated tribute to the Rolling Stones at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 29, in UC’s Corbett Auditorium. Under the direction of Scott Belck and Dominic Marino, with composer Matt Harris as guest conductor, student artists from CCM’s Department of Jazz Studies will capture the energy and excitement of “the world’s greatest rock and roll band” in this unique jazz performance. Single tickets and flex concert packages are on sale now.
Last year, both CCM and the Rolling Stones celebrated 50th anniversaries (the Rolling Stones formed in early 1962; Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music merged with the University of Cincinnati later that year). This year, CCM explores the work of the Stones in a one night only performance featuring such favorites as “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Paint it Black” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” Audiences will be delighted by an extraordinary marriage of styles and a night of music that embodies the spirit of rock and roll.
