ACC Jazz Ensemble performs tribute to former ACC student

The ACC Jazz Ensemble will perform at the 13th annual Texas Community Music Festival Friday, April 27, at Central Market North (4001 N. Lamar) from 8 to 9 p.m.

Their concert, featuring jazz bassist Sophia Villarreal, 16, includes a piece written in honor of former ACC student Draylen Mason, who died in the March bomb attacks in Austin.

“Draylen’s music was inspirational. The jazz community suffered a great loss when he passed,” says Dr. Tom ‘Bop’ Husak, ACC Jazz Ensemble artistic director. “We hope to inspire future young musicians.”

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit
