HICKORY – The Catawba Valley Community College jazz band recently offered a free monthly concert at the Hickory Music Club.
Under the direction of David Cortello, the CVCC Jazz Band performed some old jazz favorites and an original composition by Cortello.
“The CVCC has become one of the most sought-after music schools in the area,” said Hickory Music Club Secretary Nellie Pruitt.
With a rich 100-year history, the Hickory Music Club is the only remaining music club in the area and provides an opportunity to meet and forge new relationships with other musicians in the community.
“I am proud of the members of the Hickory Music Club and the impact they have on the arts in our community,” said Ada Smith, vice president and program manager.
The Hickory Music Club donated to the CVCC Music Department and voted to make the donation annual.
“We have tremendous support for the arts in this area,” said CVCC Music Program Director Caroline Simyon. “Donations from the Hickory Music Club will help our growing CVCC instrumental program and support our singers in competitions.”
