In response to the struggles musicians were experiencing due to the pandemic, MCG Jazz created the MCG Jazz Musicians Performance Fund to support Pittsburgh-area jazz musicians and provide them with an opportunity to perform new works. Ten groups were given the opportunity to perform twice and to have their performance documented. MCG Jazz brought the ten ensemble leads back together, in different configurations, to present their virtual Home for the Holidays Concert.
The Home for the Holidays Concert premieres Friday, December 11 and will be available to stream for free until Friday, January 8, 2021. Visit the Home for the Holidays event page to enjoy the free holiday jazz concert.
