SSC’s Duxbury Music Festival Presents All That Jazz


South Shore Conservatory’s Duxbury Music Festival (DMF) presents an All That Jazz concert and a wine tasting at intermission, on Wednesday, July 26, 7:30 pm at the Ellison Center for the Arts, 64 St. George Street in Duxbury.  The concert is sponsored by Lynn Dale and Frank Wisneski and the wine tasting is sponsored by Duxbury Wine and Spirits.

All That Jazz features the talents of South Shore Conservatory (SSC) faculty members and the acclaimed Noah Preminger Quintet performing modern jazz.  SSC faculty members performing include Stephen Deitz and Regina Yung on piano, John McCarthy, guitar, Victoria Chang, 1st marimba and Jesse Stiglich, 2nd marimba.   and percussion.  Guest artist Eric Hewitt performs on soprano, alto, and baritone saxophones.

In addition to saxophonist Preminger, the Noah Preminger Quintet includes Max Light on guitar, Danny Fox on piano, Greg Ryan on bass, and Max Goldman on drums.

At just 30, Preminger has recorded numerous critically acclaimed albums and is steadily listed as one of the best tenor saxophonists by critics and readers on the annual Downbeat Poll. Along with being a saxophonist, Preminger is an adventurist – being a longtime boxer, as well as an enthusiastic skydiver and skier and a devotee of games of competition, whether golf or ping-pong. The music-making of the Brooklyn- based Preminger has been called “impressive, challenging and beautiful” by The Boston Globe, while The Hartford Courant said: “Playing with the grace and expressiveness of a jazz veteran, the young man with a horn mixes cool restraint with emotional depth and old-fashioned poetry with contemporary bite.”

Of Brooklyn-based saxophonist Noah Preminger, The New York Times declares, “Mr. Preminger designs a different kind of sound for each note, an individual destiny and story.”

Tickets for All That Jazz are $50/person. For ticket and event information, visit, call 781-934-2731, ext. 23, contact DMF Festival Manager Karen Bellinger at, or follow Duxbury Music Festival on Facebook.
