SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts — An appreciative crowd of about 100 alumni, families and local music fans enjoyed the first-ever “Concerts on the Green” performance Tuesday, July 12, on the Campus Green at Saint John’s High School in Shrewsbury.
Members of the Saint John’s Jazz Combo played an hour-long set, with the talented Jazz Quartet ending the evening with their signature rendition of “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing).”
Two more evening concerts will follow, at 7 p.m. on consecutive Tuesdays, July 19 and 26, at 378 Main St., Shrewsbury. On July 19, the Jazz Combo will be joined by the Saint John’s Chorus. The final concert, July 26, will be an “Acoustic Night” with musicians from the Saint John’s community.
All are invited to these performances. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs and enjoy a relaxed summer evening outdoors with fine music. In the event of rain, the concerts will be held indoors in Remillard Hall, part of the Ryken Center building adjacent to the Campus Green. Admission and parking are free.
This is the first summer for the Saint John’s Campus Green, the centerpiece lawn that connects the school’s three academic buildings, Conal Hall, Flavian Hall and the Ryken Center. The Green, which took the place of a parking lot, was built last summer and dedicated at the Mass of the Holy Spirit in September 2010.
