Jane Monheit joins Symphonic Jazz Orchestra at Carpenter Center


The Symphonic Jazz Orchestra will perform its 15th Anniversary Concert on Sunday, May 7, at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.  The 67-member Symphonic Jazz Orchestra, conducted by Music Director Mitch Glickman, will accompany guest vocalist Jane Monheit, who will honor Ella Fitzgerald on her centennial birthday.

This one-of-a-kind celebration, which will take place at the Richard and Karen Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beach, will open with a work by George Duke and feature two exciting world premiere works by Alan Chan and Gordon Goodwin, featuring saxophone soloist Eric Marienthal.
