The Spokane Jazz Orchestra is pleased to announce our upcoming concert season, featuring an outstanding cast of nationally and internationally renowned guest artists! Our theme this year, “Jazz Alley,” will take our listening audience on a musical journey through the decades, with jazz music from the 1920’s to the present.
May 11, 2013
Our season will conclude with two of Spokane’s finest jazz musicians-the father and son combination of Dan and Ryan Keberle. We are honored to have the former Music Director of the SJO, Dan Keberle, back on stage with us! Ryan Keberle, who makes his living as a professional trombonist, arranger and educator in New York has credits that include regular engagements as trombonist with the Maria Schneider Big Band, the Saturday Night Live Band, The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. Ryan was the regular trombonist in the Tony Award winning musical "In the Heights," as well as frequently playing in a host of other Broadway shows. Dan Keberle is the director of Jazz Studies and Trumpet at Whitworth University. Dan and Ryan will be performing many of their own compositions and arrangements as soloists and together in what will be a memorable concert for all.
As an added feature, the Spokane Jazz Orchestra would like to recognize the next generation of jazz musicians by featuring for the very first time an all star high school jazz ensemble that will be made up of the finest high school jazz musicians in our area. Billed as the " SJO Young Giants of Jazz Big Band," the group will perform one number on our concert and one number with Dan and Ryan Keberle.
