East Meets West: A Night of Music in Many Shapes and Sizes
Berklee Performance Center
136 Massachusetts Avenue
Boston, MA, 02115
An exciting night of music led by faculty members Ayn Inserto and Jeff Claassen, featuring new and original music as well as more intimate configurations within the big band. Inserto and Claassen will perform arrangements of band members' original compositions, putting a different twist on them, as well as arrangements of contemporary popular music. The music will branch out a little beyond the modern big band sound, adding more global sounds to truly feel like East is meeting West.
The AIJO is a 17-member big band that has been performing in the Boston area for the last nine years. The concert will also feature performances by faculty members Allen Chase and Eric Byers.
