Manhattan School Gives Free Concert

On April Fool’s Day (April 1), the Manhattan School of Music Concert Jazz Band will play a free concert under the direction of Justin DiCioccio (pictured). A Jazz Education Hall of Famer, DiCioccio is also the school’s assistant dean and jazz department chair. He’ll lead his ensemble through a program that features Thad Jones’ “Tiptoe,” Bob Mintzer’s arrangement of Victor Feldman’s “Joshua,” Jim McNeely’s “Paper Spoons” and Cecil Bridgewater’s arrangements of Doug Carn’s “Arise and Shine” and Buddy Johnson’s “Since I Feel For You,” which will feature vocalist Charenee Wade.

The venue is the John C. Borden Auditorium located near the northwest corner of Broadway and 122nd St. in New York City. The concert starts at 8 p.m.; tickets aren’t required, just show up and listen.
