Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra's "City of Stars" at the WAG

  • Winnipeg Art Gallery 300 Memorial Boulevard Winnipeg Canada (map)

Shows: 2:00pm | 7:30pm - The Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra celebrates music from movies made memorable by their big band soundtrack. Featuring music from the iconic Man with the Golden Arm with it's film-noir soundtrack accompanying Frank Sinatra's academy award nominated performance. Music from Paris Blues with Paul Newman as a jazz trombonist, and Anatomy of a Murder with Jimmy Stewart portraying a lawyer.  Both movies are classics and featured music composed by the great Duke Ellington. The character, charm, and majesty of Big Band music is as much a part of these movies as their actors and actresses and the stories they told.  Featuring vocalists Curtis Newton and Micaylee Rodyniuk, the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra's City of Stars is a show not to be missed. More info here.
