Saxophonist Rob Verdi brings “SAXsational” to the stage on Nov. 3 and will showcase various saxophones and 50 years of jazz and pop standards.

Pianist Jason Coleman performed for the Tupelo Concert Association a few seasons ago with a tribute to his grandfather, Floyd Cramer, and he’ll return to the stage Feb. 19 with a new program.
