SSC Launches New Jazz/Rock/Pop Performance Series


With the growing demand for more jazz, rock and pop performances, South Shore Conservatory has created the SSC Jazz/Rock/Pop Series, which offers one year of professional, inspired faculty performances at reasonable prices.

SSC Jazz/Rock/Pop Series begins with SSC’s Festival Jazz Brunch and JRP Festival on September 24, 2017, and ends with the JRP Spotlight Festival, the only student performance in the series, on June 14, 2018.  Due to the popularity of SSC’s annual Hingham Jazz Festival, the Conservatory has decided to expand its reach to its second campus in Duxbury.

Other performances include Jazz Coffee Break Concert on November 28, SSC Jazz Brunch on March 25, and a JRP Series Preview Event on May 11.

South Shore Conservatory is committed to being an organization that welcomes the widest range of audience members possible – removing barriers to participation and welcoming everyone, regardless of ability. Both its Hingham and Duxbury campuses are wheelchair accessible.  For more detailed information about accessibility, please visit SSC’s Know Before You Go page.
