Jazz One to Perform Nov. 17 at CSM

Jazz One to Perform Nov. 17 at CSM

Jazz One will perform “The Great American Songbook” at 3 pm Saturday, Nov. 17, 2018, at the Benny C. Morgan Recital Series at the College of Southern Maryland’s Leonardtown Campus.

Benny Carroll Morgan was a beloved music educator in the St. Mary’s County Schools for 30 years and served as organist and choir director in several area churches. In January 2016, Mr. Morgan generously donated his prized Steinway grand piano to the College of Southern Maryland’s Leonardtown campus. Sadly, Mr. Morgan passed away several weeks later, however, with the knowledge that his generosity will add to the musical culture of CSM’s students as well as the Southern Maryland community for years to come.

The Benny C. Morgan Recital Series was instituted in his memory. Admission to the recitals in the series is free due to the generosity of community sponsors. All performances take place in the auditorium of Building A on CSM’s Leonardtown Campus on Hollywood Road.

Supporters of the Benny C. Morgan Recital Series 2018-2019 are the CSM Foundation and Johnny Alvey.

Other events in the Morgan recital series include:

  • Feb. 23, 2019, at 3 pm — Keith Wright, flute
  • March 16, 2019, at 3 pm — Creative Concert Group: “Boldness of Beethoven”
