The David Mitton Project Returns to the MAC Stage

The Marion Art Center welcomes back to the MAC stage jazz ensemble The David Mitton Project on Saturday, September 14 at 7:30pm. 

Tickets ($18 for MAC members, $20 for non-members) are available online HERE

The David Mitton Project also includes Jim Robitaille on guitar, John Dalton on drums, and Daniel Ashkenazy on bass.  A limited number of cabaret tables are available (seating for 4). Reservations are strongly recommended. While beverages are not provided, attendees may bring their own refreshments to enjoy with the music.

David Mitton, a graduate from the Longy School of Music (2010) is a saxophonist and composer.  Since graduating he has produced three albums: Catapult (2013), Microcosm (2015), and Trace (2018) under the name The David Mitton Project.  Mitton has been performing regularly with The Flying Dutchmen for nearly 5 years and is in the process of writing a practice guide for scales, in relation to composition and improvisation.  Mitton’s musical style is within the jazz idiom, with a focus on hard bop and free jazz, as well as more popular styles such as funk and R&B.  Expect to hear interplay between instruments and improvisation over progressions, influenced by such genres.  Mitton will perform original material and what he calls “underrated standards,” rearranged to make them his own.
