MCG Jazz 30th Anniversary Performance Series Continues
Since 1987, MCG Jazz has brought audiences together with jazz artists at its 350-seat music hall in Manchester. Their performance series, one of the oldest in the nation, is an anchor of Pittsburgh cultural and community life. All arts and music programs of Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild share a common vision born from founder Bill Strickland’s personal experience – that through direct involvement in the making of art and through exposure to the masters who teach and perform it, our lives will be enriched, even transformed. The 30th Anniversary Performances take place at MCG Jazz, located at 1815 Metropolitan Street in Manchester.

Growing up in Azerbaijan, Shahin’s rare talent emerged from his country’s various compositional influences as well as its unusual and rich musical heritage. Elegantly blending his classical knowledge, Azerbaijan’s traditional folk “Mugham” and his jazz influences, Shahin created his own unique and accomplished musical universe, among which he combines eastern and western cultures.
