Asheville Jazz Orchestra plays Stan Kenton Christmas

This Friday evening, December 14, 2012 at 7 PM, the Asheville Jazz Orchestra will be performing our annual Christmas charity fundraiser concert at Trinity United Methodist Church at 587 Haywood Road in Asheville, NC. This year we’re raising funds for Hall Fletcher Elementary School.

This is the sixth year we’ve performed this concert. While the charts change slightly from year to year, it always revolves around the music recorded by the Stan Kenton Orchestra on their Merry Christmas! album from 1961. Sprinkled throughout are some other arrangements of Christmas music, including three of my own this year. One of the charts we’ll be playing is my composition A Visit From St. Nicholas, for big band and narrator. If you’re in western North Carolina this Friday, come on out to hear some great live Christmas jazz and help raise money for a good cause too.

Sorry for the lack of media and links in this post. WordPress has recently done an upgrade and it is conflicting with something in my site and now I can’t get those into a post.
