Celebrated local vibraphonist Warren Wolf and Grammy®-nominated pianist and composer Alex Brown join the BSO for an exciting episode of swinging jazz music. Brown’s original composition The Old Line is followed by the sustained expressiveness of Chick Corea’s Lyric Suite for Sextet. Interspersed throughout the program are three jazz standards, Glenn Miller’s “In the Mood”, a medley of George Gershwin’s most recognized works, and Louis Prima’s exhilarating “Sing, Sing, Sing.”
