7:30 p.m. – Jazz Tribute to John Coltrane – General Admission- $15.00; Students/Seniors – $10.00

Every year the Barrie Afrocaribbean Multicultural Association and the City of Barrie present its annual Black History Month jazz tribute.  This year the event proudly showcases the Pat Labarbera and Kirk MacDonald Quintet.  This live jazz tribute to John Coltrane showcases these supremely skilled saxophonists who have heavily influenced tenor sax players.  The quintet will idolize their musical heroes as part of this year’s celebration of Coltrane’s extended recordings.  Please get ready to lose control as these aficionados take us on a musical journey to relive John Coltrane’s remarkable live performances.
