ROCKPORT — Coastal Mountains Land Trust’s Arts on the Hill program brings Mondaynite Jazz Orchestra (aka MoJO) to Beech Hill Preserve on Monday, July 15, from 6:30 – 8 p.m., as part of the summer concert series.
Mondaynite Jazz Orchestra is an 18-piece Midcoast-based big band that plays modern as well as traditional jazz, including Latin, swing, blues, and funk.
The band derives its name from their practice schedule: Monday nights, “and they certainly have their mojo workin,’” said the Land Trust, in a news release.
“Plan to bring a picnic, relax and enjoy the spectacular view…unless you’re up dancing to the beat,” the Land Trust said.
All Arts on the Hill performances are free and open to all ages, but please leave your dogs at home.
Refreshments and reception will follow the performance.
Coastal Mountains Land Trust has worked since 1986 to permanently conserve land to benefit the natural and human communities of the western Penobscot Bay. The Land Trust has protected more than 12,000 acres, offering 45 miles of trails for public recreation.
Beech Hill Preserve is a 295-acre conservation property, managed for the complementary purposes of maintaining its scenic beauty, historic value, grassland bird habitat, and organic blueberry production.
