St. Louis NORC offers ‘Banjos and Brass’ concert at JCC

The St. Louis Naturally Occurring Retirement Community invites the community for an evening of “Banjos and Brass,”  from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, May 21 at the JCC Staenberg Family Complex Arts & Education Building, 2 Millstone Campus Drive. 

Two banjos, a trombone and a tuba will have the audience’s toes tapping to songs from the Gay ’90s, the Roaring ’20s and Tin Pan Alley.  The musicians have played all around St. Louis including Gaslight Square and on Mississippi riverboats.

The cost is $7 at the door and includes pretzels, popcorn, soda and coffee. Seating is limited, so RSVPs are recommended. For more information, call Joan at 314-442-3834 or [email protected]

In 2011, NORC opened its on-site programming (health and wellness, educational, cultural workshops, and bus outings) to anyone in the 65+ age group who has an interest in learning, meeting new people and exploring some of the cultural institutions in our community.
