Big Band Christmas

Big Band Christmas!

Modesto Junior College Foundation in collaboration with the Modesto Junior College Arts Division presents Ernie Bucio’s Little Big Band for a Very Merry Big Band Christmas on Sunday, December 8 at 2 p.m. in the Main Auditorium on the East Campus. Join us for a festive afternoon of Christmas music…BIG BAND JAZZ STYLE! Tickets are $10 and all proceeds
from this benefit concert will go towards the Ernie Bucio MJC Music Scholarship fund.

Ernesto Endencio “Ernie” Bucio was a local freelance musician/business owner whose passion was working with young local musicians. Ernie accomplished this through his tireless n educational, performance and philanthropic efforts. As an avid supporter of music education, it was not uncommon for Ernie to give free trumpet lessons to economically disenfranchised students. He never turned a student away. If they were willing to work, he was willing to offer his services. It is in this spirit that Ernie’s friends have come together to continue his legacy of
empowering our young local musicians. Please join us for this fun-filled afternoon of Big Band Jazz and Christmas music…plus, all children can get their picture taken with Santa Claus!

Tickets are available online at Tickets may also be
purchased at the Box Office Tuesday through Friday, 12 noon to
5 p.m., or over the phone by calling (209) 575-6776. Campus
parking is free for the afternoon.
