The sensational Moving Big Band from Sweden is coming back to CMC!
MBB, which specialises in Swedish jazz as well as performing big band favourites, Latin and Afro-Cuban jazz, will be performing in CMC’s College Campus, on Monday, the 5th of February 2024 at the Scudder Auditorium.
Through the concert, we are trying to raise funds for the Alumni Medical Assistance Fund. The fund provides help for our medical alumni who have devoted their careers to working in mission hospitals, but need medical care here.
‘Big Bands’ developed playing jazz music during the swing era of the 1930s and 40s and typically contain a hearty group of horns (saxophones, trumpets and trombones) accompanied by a rhythm section.
Originally founded in 1976 the MBB was always on the move searching for places in which to practice, thus the name “Moving” came naturally. They first came to Vellore in 2017 for the Ida Scudder Memorial Concert and subsequently in 2020. Our alumnus Dr. Donald Roberts (MBBS Batch of 1959) accompanies them on the keyboard.
The Moving Big Band is led by Mr. Hans Hall, a guitarist and consists of trumpets, trombones, saxaphones, bass, drums, piano and singers.
