Jazz Concert History

Did you miss Aardvark’s historic 50th anniversary concert held on International Music Day, Sat. , Oct. 1st, 2022 at MIT’s Kresge Auditorium? Watch the webcast replay below, thanks to MIT.

The concert included music on themes of social consciousness, spirituality, and Boston cultural history – topics that have long been central to Aardvark concerts.  Among the selections were Harvey’s Faces of Souls and Ellington’s It’s Freedom.   A highlight was the premiere of Harvey’s latest work, American Agonistes, channeling the moods of sorrow and outrage so characteristic of our times

The video includes introductory remarks by Keeril Makan, Head for Music & Theater Arts at MIT, and additional reflections by Samuel Jay Keiser, Aardvark trombonist and longtime member of the MIT community.
