SBCC Music returns to the Lobero Theatre on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. for a benefit concert featuring special guest Michael McDonald performing alongside SBCC Music students and faculty. Last year’s sold-out show was a highlight in the local music scene.
SBCC’s award-winning Lunch Break Jazz Band directed by Jim Mooy will present an exciting set of contemporary Big Band Jazz, and the New World Jazz Ensemble directed by Tony Ybarra will play a tribute to Miles Davis. Musical legend Michael McDonald will perform hits from his illustrious career accompanied by a string ensemble from SBCC Music. Talented SBCC Music alumni Cambria Metzinger and Phoebe Light will also perform.
The concert will sell out! A limited number of VIP tickets are available that include a reception where attendees will meet and greet with Michael McDonald and SBCC musicians. “The community’s response to last year’s show was overwhelming – many had no idea that SBCC’s Music Program was so extraordinary. We are excited to be returning to the Lobero and grateful to Michael McDonald and all the performers, who are once again generously donating their time and talents for this special evening,” said Geoff Green, CEO of the SBCC Foundation.
Tickets are on sale now at the Lobero Theatre (purchase online) and range from $55 to $75, with VIP tickets available for $150. SBCC students may attend at the reduced price of $25. The Lobero box officer may be reached at (805) 963-0761.
The concert is presented by the SBCC Foundation and will directly benefit SBCC Music.
