Paul Winter Sextet at Mahaiwe PAC, June 6-7 [Berkshire on Stage]

Paul Winter
Paul Winter and his sextet will be in top form. The concerts are being filmed for posterity.

Paul Winter’s first band, back half a century ago when he was a student at Northwestern University, was the Paul Winter Sextet. It has a history that is both tragic and uplifting. To mark the 50th Anniversary of his first band, and to capture the group for posterity, Paul Winter returns for two reunion concerts at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center on June 6 & 7, at 7:30pm. The concert will be filmed.

The band will include four of the original Sextet members – pianist Warren Bernhardt, drummer Harold Jones, bassist Cecil McBee, and Paul Winter on alto sax – along with trumpeter Marvin Stamm and baritone saxist Howard Johnson.
