CES at FSU to Host Jazz Group Banda Magda in LIVE! At StarScape Concert
The Cultural Events Series at Frostburg State University will present a LIVE! at StarScape performance of the exhilarating multi-cultural jazz band Banda Magda on Friday, April 5, in the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall in FSU’s Lane University Center. The 7:30 p.m. club-style event includes bar service and a menu of beverages, appetizers and desserts.
Drawing on the band’s global background, Banda Magda combines South American rhythms with jazz improvisation, cinematic arranging, mid-century classics and world chansons sung in six languages. The New York-based group unites a Juan García Esquivel-loving vibes player from Japan; an Argentinean jazz guitarist; a Nagasaki-born percussionist; a South American percussionist; and the band leader, a charismatic Greek multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Magda Giannikou. Together, these close musical friends turn Giannikou’s songs into engaging romps that have earned them appearances at Carnegie Hall, Joe’s Pub in New York City and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Immediately following the performance, CES will join forces with FSU’s WFWM-FM Public Radio to present the Offstage Series with WFWM, when station director Chuck Dicken joins the artists onstage for a lively interactive discussion with the audience.
Tickets are $18 for adults and $16.20 for youth under 18. Member, military and group discount rates are also available.
