LONG BEACH, Miss. --The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast Ambassador Series will present Jazz Reach featuring the Metta Quintet, April 2 and "Accordion Pyrotechniques" on April 3.

Both performances are free and open to the public.

The Metta Quintet performance, which is part of the Jazz Reach Performing Arts and Education Association, will start at 7 p.m. in the Advanced Education Center Auditorium on the Gulf Park campus in Long Beach.

Comprised of some of New York City's fastest emerging artists, the Metta Quintet reflects Jazz Reach's wide range of artistic scope and aspirations to serve wider, more diverse audiences.

"Accordion Pyrotechniques," which features Stas' Venglevski, will start at 7 p.m. at Second Street Elementary School on Carroll Avenue in Bay St. Louis.

Venglevski will perform on an accordion, one of the most beloved folk instruments in Russia. His keyboard artistry, technical command and sensitivity have brought him increasing acclaim as a virtuoso of the accordion. Performing with him will be pianist Theresa Sanchez, who enjoys a varied performing career as a soloist and collaborative musician.
