The inspiration for “Symphony, Song, Swing!” came from the great Billie Holiday record “Lady In Satin”. I first heard it when I was only 15 years old and I just fell in love.
This concert combines classical music and jazz. Growing up in a musical house, classical music was alway around so bringing my passion to the American Songbook to the symphonic setting felt natural.
These brand new arrangements introduce colors and textures which make the orchestra really swing. The jazz trio is not only blended into the arrangements but is also featured throughout the concert.
