A Mesa State College alumnus and saxophonist and the Los Angeles-based jazz quartet Slumgum will be in Grand Junction for a special concert titled “Generations Converge.”
Joe Anderies, who has taught for more than 20 years on the Front Range and currently teaches middle school band and orchestra in Douglas County Public Schools, has been professional musician for more than 35 years, touring nationally with the jazz group The Young Lions as part of the touring show “This is America.” Anderies grew up in Grand Junction, received his master’s degree in music education and saxophone from University of Colorado and continues to play and record jazz.
Anderies will join his son Trevor, a member of Slumgum, for a concert of “inspirational and joyful jazz music” at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 26, in the Recital Hall of Colorado Mesa University’s Moss Performing Arts Center, 1231 N. 12th St.
Slumgum is on its fall tour and the Grand Junction performance is its last before the group returns to Los Angeles.
Admission is a $5 donation at the door, no advance tickets will be sold. Colorado Mesa University music students may attend the concert free.
