Orchestra Meets Jazz

Jazz, the quintessential American music, traveled all the way to Europe and back before becoming a part of the orchestral canon here in its native country. Composers like George Gershwin ultimately became masters of using the sounds of jazz in the symphony hall. A five-piece combo from The Colored Musicians Club of Buffalo will join the BPO to illustrate Buffalo’s important role in the birth of jazz in America.

Program includes:

Stravinsky - Ragtime                                                                                                                                            

Copland - Music for the Theatre                                    

Gershwin - An American in Paris                                                                    

Ellington - Sophisticated Lady
