Mercedes Menz in Top Gear @ ICMuS Preview. June 5

Musicians from the International Centre for Music Studies (aka the music department) at Newcastle University took advantage of a glorious summer’s day to promote next week’s ICMuS Summer Music Festival with a series of performances on an outdoor stage set up outside Armstrong Building (conveniently next to the bar in the Students’ Union).
An ad hoc jazz quintet – Mercedes Menz – assembled under an awning to escape a baking sun, a pleasant change to sheltering from the rain! Led by a final year soon-to-graduate reeds player by the name of Mercedes Philips, the ensemble name couldn’t be more appropriate! Her all-male band mates (keyboards, guitar, double bass and drums) study across the spectrum – classical, folk, jazz – and with the stress of exams behind them they played without a care in the world. Oh, to be a student!
The ICMuS Summer Festival runs from June 9-13. All performances are in King’s Hall with free admission to lunchtime sessions (1:00 pm). Admission to evening concerts (7:30 pm) will be by payment at the door.
