UTICA, N.Y. – The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Band stopped by Proctor High School Friday as part of their state tour.
The band performed for students, playing various genres.
“They feel that exposing students and communities to music of every different style, everything from Dixieland to Jazz to Classical to Broadway, popular tunes, inspires them to study music, learn about the world, and reach for their dreams,” said Bob Mortis, director of performing arts at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute.
The band will also perform a full concert at MWPAI on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
General admission tickets will be available at the door.
