Mr Rogers Message and Music Concert
Sunday, October 27, 2019
4:00PM – 5:30PM
On Sunday, October 27th at 4:00pm …The Le Moyne Jazzuits, a lively group of four sopranos, four altos, three tenors, and three bass, backed by a terrific ensemble made up of piano, bass, guitar, drums, sax/flute, violin, and cello, will be presenting Mr. Rogers famous collection of songs. Joining them will be well-known and loved area jazz interpreter, Ronnie Leigh. The musical arrangements are by Carol Jacobe and Scott Arcangel and the whole project is the brain-child of Tom Andino, who mindfully dresses in cardigan and sneakers and speaks in quiet slow-paced tones for the narration.
Quoting Tony and Lynn Cuda who wrote an editorial after last year’s show at the Cathedral…“In these fast-paced days we live in, it was so refreshing and peaceful to think back upon Fred Rogers' fifty years of "quiet talk," sharing his own uniquely wholesome and meaningful values with our children. And with the new Tom Hanks movie, depicting him, coming out soon, I only hope that Mr. Andino and the Jazzuits will think about presenting this concert again for those who missed it”.
And for those that missed it, and for those anxious to see it again...aren’t we the fortunate ones that this incredible show will be presented at Our Lady of Pompei/St Peters for our parish and community??!!!
This is an incredible show for our children, grandchildren and total family to enjoy and treasure!!! We hope you will join us!!
