Trumpeter Jeff Stevens leaves on a high note
No doubt Jeff Stevens has got chops.
One of the best trumpeters around, he performs some 150 dates a year with Barrington Stage, Amherst Jazz Orchestra, Wanda Houston Band, and others. He also played with The Four Tops, Natalie Cole, and The Temptations.
Longest-running gig: band director at Monument Valley Middle and Monument Mountain High Schools. Surprising many, he’s retiring after 34 years.
Monument High’s March 4 Pops concert at the Mahaiwe isn’t to be missed—featuring Stevens, fellow musicians, and his beloved students. Friday, March 4, 2016 at 8pm.
