SHOW DESCRIPTION:
The CJO pays tribute to the "King of Swing" and his famous 1938 concert on its 75th anniversary!

On January 16, 1938, Benny Goodman brought his swing orchestra to America's venerated home of European classical music, Carnegie Hall. The resulting concert – widely considered one of the most significant events in American music history – helped to usher jazz and swing music into the American cultural mainstream. Join Byron and the CJO as they recreate this landmark concert and recording with the help of clarinetist/saxophonist Ken Peplowski in the role of Goodman, and rising young jazz trumpeter/vocalist Bria Skonberg.

JAZZ ACADEMY WORKSHOP OPPORTUNITY:
Saturday, March 15, 2:00 p.m. featuring Ken Peplowski & Bria Skonberg.
