Music at the Marion Art Center
MARION — The Marion Art Center announces a new music program as part of its “Music at the MAC” series which will feature a small ensemble of musicians in the Marion Art Center’s Patsy Francis Gallery. The first event, scheduled on Friday, April 14, will feature Matt Richard and Donn Legge. This jazz guitar and piano duo was recently formed, but Richard and Legge have known each other and collaborated in many musical events beginning at Westfield State College in the early 1980s.
There will be two separate performances during the night, and each set will last about 45 minutes. Find a spot at a cabaret table to listen to a mix of jazz standards and original compositions by both artists. Guests will enjoy a refreshing setting at this “unplugged” performance featuring mainly acoustic sound, without the volume and density of bass and drums often experienced during larger concerts in the Marion Art Center Theater. Guests may bring their own beverages and snacks to enjoy in this intimate setting.
The first “seating” will begin at 7:30 p.m., while the second will begin at 8:45 p.m. Tickets for one set are $12 for Marion Art Center members and $15 for nonmembers. Tickets for nonmembers go on sale on Friday, Feb. 24. Capacity is limited to approximately 25 guests per set, and advance reservations are strongly recommended. Of note: guests must access the room via a staircase leading to the second floor. Learn more and purchase tickets online at marionartcenter.org/events.
