Orchestra Kentucky: SatchmoVisit Website
A powerhouse trumpeter, gifted with a soulful voice and charismatic swagger, Byron Stripling brings the great Louis Armstrong and the energetic music of New Orleans to life. You’ll want to be in that number when the saints go marchin’ in!
Also during this concert Lee Mendelson Film Productions announces the World Premiere of the first-ever Peanuts Concerto for Piano and Orchestra based on the legendary music of Vince Guaraldi, arranged by Grammy-winning composer, Dick Tunney, featuring pianist Jeffrey Biegel with Orchestra Kentucky, led by Music Director, Jeff Reed. This moving arrangement sets Guaraldi's classic music from the Peanuts® specials, into a three-movement work for piano and orchestra. It will be a wonderful introduction for families to hear the jazz writings of the late Vince Guaraldi in a 21st century symphonic landscape. Mr. Biegel is one of the most respected pianists of our time.
