PCC's annual pops concert is a collection of hits from the Big Band Era. Audiences will hear music from Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, Ella Fitzerald, the Andrew Sisters, and many more.
"We performed an enormously popular Big Band concert in 2014, and ever since people have been asking when we were going to feature the hits of the "greatest generation" again. Audiences of all ages love this music, and we're really looking forward to revisiting some of the tunes we performed in 2014 and adding some new selections as well," Music Director Susan Medley said. "We are thrilled to have the Jazz Conspiracy Swingtet joining us again for these concerts. They specialize in swing music and jazz. Our audiences will feel like they are sitting in a club in the 1940s when they hear this music. And since the concerts are Mother's Day weekend, they are the perfect Mother's Day gift for moms of all ages!"
These spring concerts feature The Jazz Conspiracy Swinget, made up of members of The Jazz Conspiracy, and the 100 members of the Pittsburgh Concert Chorale. A listing of the music can be found on the Pittsburgh Concert Chorale website.
