MSU Federal Credit Union welcomed Carmen Bradford, accomplished jazz vocalist, for a showstopping performance. The October 3 performance saw the return of the Blue Mondays concert series. Bradford was discovered at the age of 22, by Count Basie, and has performed with musical greats such as Tony Bennett, James Brown, and Frank Sinatra.
Blue Mondays are a component of the MSUFCU Jazz Artist in Residence Program, a partnership with the MSU College of Music. Through the Residence Program, Bradford worked with MSU Jazz Studies professors to mentor high school and college students. Director of Jazz Studies, Rodney Whitaker said, "With her wealth of knowledge and experience, having Ms. Bradford tour with our students will help to elevate their performance abilities." Upcoming Blue Mondays performances feature trombonist Adrian Mears, guitarist Bruce Forman, and saxophonist Camille Thurman. Visit msufcu.org/bluemondays
