A new concert series is starting up at the Jewish Community Center of Victoria: Jewish Jazz Composers. This first show will spotlight the music of the iconic song writing duo, Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart.
An all star band bringing the music to life will include: Tony Genge on Piano, the series host, Louis Rudner on bass, and a new addition to the Vancouver scene, Nicholas Bracewell on drums. There will be two sets of music from 7-9pm as well as some stories of the famous duo. Light refreshments (Tea and Coffee and something sweet to nibble on) will be available.
This new series will present one show a month for March, April, and May, then resume in the September with a fresh set of themed shows.
