LIVESTREAM: Queen's Jazz Ensemble Fall Concert

2021-22 DAN School of Drama and Music
Digital Concert Hall
Friday, Nov 26, 2021 at 7:30 PM (ET)

The DAN School Jazz Ensemble has provided an outlet for students from all faculties to create and perform music from the jazz and big band repertoire. Since its inception, student musicians who have an interest in jazz and popular music have been able to come together to collaborate and create inspiring performances of classic and modern big band music. Recent performances have included works by big band masters Quincy Jones, Count Basie, Thad Jones, Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, Sammy Nestico, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, and Nelson Riddle. The band has also performed works by many current exponents of big band composition. They have recently performed the music of Bob Mintzer, Maria Schneider, Bill Holman, Vince Mendoza, Jim McNeeley and Mike Holober. By exposing students to a wide variety of classic and contemporary big band repertoire, students gain an insight into the intricacies of rehearsing and performing classic and contemporary big band music.

The DAN School of Drama & Music is delighted to be back on campus learning and performing together. As our first semester back together nears its end, we are incredibly excited to present ensemble performances this November and December at the beautiful Isabel Bader Center for the Performing Arts.

While the Queen's community has benefitted greatly by applying the Safe Return to Campus Framework this fall, the time for diligence and caution has not passed. While our students have been able to rehearse and perform together, we are taking a prudent approach to public performance this fall. Given the ongoing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and the current rising cases in Ontario, all of our upcoming concerts will be live-streamed so that as broad an audience as possible can enjoy them. 

We look forward to this exciting milestone and thank you for your patience until we can safely welcome you to campus again for in-person concerts. In the meantime, please enjoy our live-streamed performances.
