Jazz at Mountain Shadows

Past Musical Events

  • Free Jazz Concert — April 15, 2024, 7:00 PM
    • As noted in the 3-28-24 Saddlebag Notes and AZ Daily Star, Mountain Shadows Presbyterian Church invited everyone to a free music concert on Monday, April 15 at 7:00 PM.  One of our own members, trombonist JJ Johnston, played in the group.  The evening concert featured about twenty musicians and a vocalist from the Oro Valley Jazz Band.  In appreciation for use of rehearsal space at Mountain Shadows, the Band took up a free will offering and donated a major portion to Mountain Shadows.  Like past performances of the Band, the room was full of energy and joy, causing everyone to sway with the beat of the music.  For more information about the Band, see their Facebook page (https://m.facebook.com/orovalleyjazz).  Check out the Mountain Shadows webpage (www.mountainshadowschurch.org) for updates about all the activities underway to welcome and care for the community. 
  • “Join Us For Music Appreciation Sunday” — September 24, 2023 —
    • Mountain Shadows Presbyterian Church invites all to join us for worship at 10:00 AM on Sunday, September 24 featuring special music. Following the service and some light refreshments under our ramada, Retro Swing 7 (RS7) will put on a full concert beginning by 11:30 AM. The concert will be inside our cooled sanctuary with comfortable seating and great acoustics.  RS7 has been entertaining audiences in southern Arizona for more than twenty years. RS7 plays all kinds of music from the early1920’s ‘Big Band” to contemporary music. As an extension of our Music Appreciation Sunday focus, RS7 will provide a wide variety of jazz-gospel, big band jazz, ballads and rock tunes in a fast-paced one hour concert. The public is invited to attend both the worship service and/or the RS7 concert. There will be no charge for enjoying God’s melodious gifts.  Check out the pictures from the event — RS7.
