ACC to Host Big Band Concert
Those who love to dance to swing and jazz music will get their chance to jump, jive and wail during the Alvin Community College Big Band Concert on February 4.
The 13th Annual Evening of Big Band Music by the Kurland Street Band will begin playing the first notes at 7 p.m. and last dance will be 10 p.m. at the Alvin Community College Nolan Ryan Center.
Members of The Kurland Street Band, who have been donating their time to the event since its inception in 1999, have performed concerts throughout southeast Texas for 25 years. The Kurland Street Band is regularly hired to play in country clubs, hotels and large parities in the Houston area and has performed at many well-known functions, including the USO Show for the rededication of the Battleship Texas.
Funds raised at the event will go directly to the Music Department and alumni scholarships.
Tickets are $10 and will include admission to the dance and light refreshments throughout the evening. Tickets are available at the Student Activities Center, Music Department and the Administrative office. They also will be sold at the door.
The dance will be at the Nolan Ryan Center and will run from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. For more information about the event, call 281-756-3686 or 281-756-3600.
