Sue Neilsen, Mingus Festival, says jazz great Charles Mingus was born in Nogales in 1922. She says the 4th annual Charles Mingus Hometown Jazz Festival had been scheduled for April 8-10, but due to a problem in getting adequate sponsors, this year’s event has been cancelled. She says that a related event Friday, April 8 in Sonora is still taking place, since it is funded by a Sonoran arts organization.Sergio mendoza y la Orkesta from Tucson will be featured. She says Santa Cruz Advocates for the Arts will now try to secure funding so the local Festival can take place again next year.
