Last concert of the 2014 season!
This concert is produced in collaboration with the Schulich School of Music Jazz program. This series of concerts aims to promote the talent of young students hailing from musical institutions on the flanks of the mountain and wishes to re-establish the musical tradition of this exceptional site.
Stay with us after the show! Les amis de la montagne will provide a free guided visit of the Chalet (in English and in French), relating its history, architecture and decorative paintings.
Produced by Les amis de la montagne jointly with the Ville de Montréal, the concert series is also made possible thanks to the support of the TD Bank, principal partner, and Journal Métro, media partner.
The McGill Jazz Orchestra 1 has earned a reputation as one of the finest University jazz ensembles anywhere. The band has performed in France, England, Ireland, Mexico, Switzerland and throughout the United States and Canada and has released nine highly regarded CD's. The ensemble has also performed with many world-class jazz performers and composers, including Slide Hampton, Jim McNeely, Joe Lovano, Joe LaBarbera and Ranee Lee.
With the recent appointment of jazz composer and trumpeter Joe Sullivan as its new musical director, the MJO takes on a challenging new repertoire that embraces Canadian composers, traditional and contemporary jazz masterworks and music written by the outstanding students of the Schulich School of Music Jazz program.
