A handpicked 16-piece big band of jazz all-stars will make their debut as the Jazz @ The Jacobs Orchestra, led by series curator and trumpeter, Gilbert Castellanos. This special concert features the San Diego Symphony and veteran jazz vocalist Barbara Morrison performing a jazzy suite of Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt, the best of Duke Ellington and more!


A special message from Gilbert Castellanos:

It is a dream come true to present the premiere of the Jazz @ The Jacobs Orchestra featuring Barbara Morrison. Listen to the classic sound of Big Band Jazz a la Basie, Ellington and Lunceford, but with a twist! The world-renowned San Diego Symphony Orchestra and the Jazz @ The Jacobs Orchestra will collaborate on Grieg's classic Peer Gynt suite, along with other jazz repertoire that is sure to please audiences with various musical tastes.

On April 29th, the big band experience will bring a lively and joyful presence to Copley Symphony Hall, and I am extremely proud to showcase 18 of my favorite players on the scene today. I personally invite you to join me for the best jazz party of the year, taking place in our very fine city. Keep Jazz Alive!

For the love of Music,

Gilbert Castellanos
Jazz @ The Jacobs Series Curator
