Friday Night Performing Arts Featuring Artistry in Jazz
August 9, 2019
ARTISTRY IN JAZZ is a group of 21 musicians and a vocalist local to the Wilmington area. The music we perform is based on the west coast style of Stan Kenton. His music was performed from the 40’s through the late 70’s. Our orchestra plays the original manuscript copies as recorded by the Kenton Orchestra.
Our repertoire consists of arrangements by Stan Kenton, Lennie Niehaus, Bill Holman, Gene Roland, Bill Russo, Bill Mathieu, Hank Levy and others. Other styles performed are by Ted Heath, Perez Prado, Les Brown, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey and Glenn Miller.
Join us on the Carolina Beach Boardwalk for the Friday Night Performing Arts! This will occur every Friday from June 7th to August 16th from 7 PM to 9 PM. Hope to see you there!
