Vancouver Legacy Jazz Orchestra
Directed by the renowned Canadian composer, Orchestra leader and educator; Fred Stride, The Vancouver Legacy Jazz Orchestra is a gathering of elite freelance commercial musicians from the Vancouver jazz scene.
The band is called a Legacy Orchestra because it is dedicated to performing the music of the great composers of big band jazz. They rehearse once a month and, every three months, give standing-room-only performances. This Sunday is no exception as they will present five original compositions of the eight-time Grammy Award winning composer, valve trombonist, recording artist and jazz icon, Bob Brookmeyer.
