Ernesto Endencio “Ernie” Bucio was a local freelance musician/business owner whose passion was working with young local musicians. Ernie accomplished this through his tireless educational, performance and philanthropic efforts. As an avid supporter of music education, it was not uncommon for Ernie to give free trumpet lessons to economically disenfranchised students. He never turned a student away. If they were willing to work, he was willing to offer his services. It is in this spirit that Ernie’s friends have come together to continue his legacy of empowering our young local musicians.

All proceeds from this benefit concert will go towards the Ernie Bucio MJC Music Scholarship fund.

Please join us for this fun filled afternoon of Big Band Jazz and Christmas music...plus, all children can get their picture taken with a 12 ft. Santa Claus!
