Peace Jubilee Concert II
Featuring the Capri Big Band
Friday, September 27, 2019 at 7:30 pm 
Judson Church, 4101 Harriet Ave S, Mpls, MN 55409

The Capri Big Band is a north Minneapolis group based out of the Capri Theater in north Minneapolis. There are 20 plus members in the band. They play great Big Band standards and this year’s concert will feature a jazz version of “Amazing Grace.”

This concert is a part of the 10 Days of Non-Violence Celebration which is held at the end of September.

The original Peace Jubilee concerts were held in Boston in 1868. It was a 5-day event of concerts held in a special building with thousands in attendance involving a large orchestra and a thousand voice chorus. Even President Grant was in attendance. Since then there have been many "peace jubilee" concerts. This one celebrates America's music called "Jazz."
