6th Annual Big Band Gala and Dance Party
December 3, 2010
The Vermont Jazz Center’s own 17 piece big band will be performing along with special guest vocalists Amanda Carr & local favorite Mark Anagnostopoulus. This annual event celebrates Jazz's origins as dance music while paying tribute to the big band era. The Jazz Center's 17 piece big band is a collaboration of professional jazz musicians from the tri state area who enthusiastically interpret arrangements from the great dance orchestras of the 30's and 40's: Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman and others. This event has become a jazz center tradition and always proves to be a joyful, swinging affair replete with vocalists and top notch instrumental soloists. So prepare for a fantastic evening out with great music for listening and dancing as well as tasty desserts. You will be glad you "put on your dancing shoes.
