Chris Greene Quartet
Saturday, October 19, 2019 – 3:00pm
The Community Barn
Los Ranchos, NM
This concert is a fundraiser to benefit the “Music in Schools” program serving schools in Corrales and Los Ranchos.
The Chris Greene Quartet (CGQ) has been a highly visible part of the Chicago jazz scene since 2005, and has developed a true group sound and feel by maintaining a stable lineup for almost a decade. While honoring the tradition, the CGQ incorporates elements of funk, hip-hop, rock, pop, the blues, and reggae, reflecting the diverse backgrounds of the band members. Greene has been described by All About Jazz as “a post-bop maverick intent on shaking things up for the mainstream.”

Corrales Cultural Arts Council (CCAC ) recognizes that each child is an individual; that all children are creative; that all children need to succeed. We are committed to fostering a sense of community as well as offering the highest level of musical performance and instruction. Our hope is to provide students of all ages with the skills they need
to enjoy music for a lifetime.
The all-volunteer Corrales Cultural Arts Council (CCAC) created the Music in Corrales series in 1986 as a musical offering to the Corrales community. The series was conceived as a way of preserving New Mexico’s vast musical and cultural heritage, and a way to create a new one as well. What was started by a few dedicated persons who recognized the importance of music to people’s lives, has grown to an organization that brings exceptional musicians to the Historic Old San Ysidro Church where the audience is no longer just neighbors. Local residents and guests from the middle Rio Grande Valley share the evening with visitors from other states and further abroad.
The hope of the CCAC has been that everyone could enjoy a sampling of the world’s finest musical performances in a stunning New Mexican location at affordable prices. Still an all-volunteer group of involved members, we are pleased to see that dream continuing to grow and flourish in such a wonderful way.
