Hard Rubber Orchestra feat. Sal Ferreras
Granville Island Jazz
The 18-piece Hard Rubber Orchestra’s “blend of serious music and hot grooves makes them a powerhouse of intelligent entertainment” (All Music Guide). With a roster full of Vancouver’s top jazz and classical instrumentalists, they’ve commissioned compositions by Kenny Wheeler, Darcy James Argue, and more. For this special concert, the HRO presents the world premiere of a 30-minute Concerto for Piano and Jazz Orchestra by Montreal’s Marianne Trudel, a pianist/composer with an incredible gift for blending passion and intelligence with rapturous melodicism. The evening will also feature percussionist Sal Ferreras on the microtonal glass lumiphone, and a new Renaissance-inspired composition by bandleader John Korsrud.
Presented with the Hard Rubber New Music Society.
