Join us for a special concert of pieces written by and for SRJO players, for the band during the isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic. Selections include “Shards” by SRJO pianist Randy Halberstadt, “Swaltz” by SRJO saxophonist Alex Dugdale, and the new “Passage Suite” by Michael Brockman (written as a contemplation of the trans-Atlantic slave trade of the 16th-through-19th centuries). Also featured are pieces written for SRJO by friends and colleagues, including The Endless Search Suite, commissioned in 2006 by SRJO from jazz legend, Jimmy Heath (1926-2020). Award-winning vocalist (and SRJO audience favorite) Jacqueline Tabor joins us as well, performing Billy Strayhorn's enchanting ballad, "Lush Life" and more! Ticketholders can access a recording of the Livestream for a week following the performance.
