Senior Series: Snow White and seven fantastic big band works

Conductor Jouni Järvelä

Which big band classic is Happy? What would Grumpy sound like if played as jazz? Or Sneezy? UMO’s popular Senior Series returns with tongue firmly in cheek, exploring masterpieces of the big band repertoire through familiar fairy-tale characters.

The concert will feature swinging music from masters of big band jazz such as Duke Ellington and Thad Jones, and also from less known but no less merited composers. Conductor Jouni Järvelä has scoured the UMO music archive for pieces that reflect the personalities of the seven dwarves. But what does Snow White herself sound like?

NOTE! Before the Kanneltalo concert there will be a pre-concert talk where conductor and planner Jouni Järvelä will discuss the concert and its background. Kanneltalo, 31 January at 13.15.
