A date has been set for Oro Valley's 11th annual Jazz Legends in Concert.

This year's event, featuring music by pianist Shelly Berg, drummer Frank Capp, tenor saxophone player and returnee Houston Person, trombonist and 2004 player John Allred, bass player Chuck Berghofer, trumpet player Scotty Barnhart and vocalist Barbara Morrison, is slated for Saturday, Sept. 18.

It's presented by Al and Marilyn Cook and the Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance poolside at the Hilton Tucson El Conquistador Golf and Tennis Resort.

"These musicians are the best players in the world," Cook said, and they'll come together for "an extraordinary jazz concert" as well as student invitational master classes offered to University of Arizona and high school students. Master classes bring music students "face-to-face with these world-renowned musicians," a release said.

The show begins at 6:30 p.m. that Saturday. Discounted packages — including resort accommodations, prime seating for the concert and a complimentary dinner — are on sale.

Ticket options begin at $25 for lawn seats, $50 for poolside reserved seats and $85 for the combination of a three-course dinner prior to the concert and poolside reserved seats. In addition, a discounted package for two is available, which includes overnight accommodations at the resort.

All the monies raised go directly back to local schools to support music and art programs.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
