Capital City Big Band Concert at the Lourie Center The Lourie Center in partnership with the Capital City Big Band (CCBB) will present a dance and concert of live music Sunday November 17, from 3-5 p.m. This is the only public performance of the CCBB. The all-volunteer CCBB, under the direction of Robert Gardiner, will perform two 45-minute sets. The ensemble is comprised of 20 small business owners and a wide variety of professionals. All of the band members are passionate about perpetuating the sound of the Big Band Era. CCBB formed in 1997 under the leadership of USC jazz artist-in-residence Roger Pemberton. Several musicians have been members of the band from its inception; at least five have been playing with CCBB for more than 15 years. Tickets for the concert are $10 available at the Lourie Center, $5 for Carolina Jazz Society members. Tickets are available at the door. No reserved seating. Doors open at 2 pm. Guests are welcome to bring their own snacks and beverages. Proceeds from this fundraiser event will go toward operations and Lourie Center programs.
