Seattle Jazz Composers Ensemble, with support from 4culture, presents the first annual SJCE New Works concert this December. Premiering eight new works for 10-piece ensemble, the performance will feature commissions by Wayne Horvitz, Samantha Boshnack, Beth Fleenor, David Marriot, Michael Owcharuk, Andy Clausen, Thomas Marriott, and Nate Omdal.
A hotbed of creative scenes and aesthetics, Seattle has one of the most vibrant jazz and im- provised music communities in the world. With activities happening concurrently in circles around the city, there are few events that bring together and celebrate the entire range of these scenes and respective composers working actively in large ensemble material. With New Works 2013 SJCE will present a dynamic array of scores by Seattle jazz composers.
The band: Beth Fleenor (clarinet); Kate Olson, Brian Bermudez, Mike Dodge (woodwinds); Al Keith, Tom Marriott (trumpets); David Marriott (trombone), Michael Owcharuk (piano) Nate Omdal (bass), and Jacques Willis (drums).
All ages, $5-15 sliding scale.
