The Doña Ana Arts Council (DAAC) continues its popular “Classical Drinking” evenings of live music “in a relaxed, casual atmosphere,” with 2020 performances scheduled in February, March and April.
The schedule of performances is as follows:
A native of New York state, Unsworth joined UTEP's Music Department in 2003 as assistant professor of string bass, jazz and commercial music studies, according to his UTEP biography. He took over as director of UTEP's Jazz Ensemble in 2009 and received the rank of associate professor of music in 2010. For more information, visit www.erikunsworth.com.
Jim Shearer is DAAC’s artistic director for the Classical Drinking series.
All events will be 7:30-9:30 p.m. in the DAAC Arts and Cultural Center, 1740 Calle de Mercado, in Bulletin Plaza. Each event is on a Saturday and part of the Second Saturday “Experience Mesilla Arts Hop.” Performances will follow DAAC’s Arts Hop Gallery opening, 4-7 p.m., each second Saturday.
