Commemorating 80 years since Orchestra Hall reopened as the Paradise Theatre in 1941, the DSO is thrilled to debut its Paradise Jazz Big Band, comprised of top jazz musicians from Detroit and special guests from around the world. Led by trumpeter and arranger Kris Johnson, the newly formed ensemble will feature music by some of jazz giants who graced the Paradise Jazz Theatre stage between 1941-1951, big band charts by our Erb Jazz Chair Terence Blanchard, and new arrangements by Kris Johnson.

This performance is only available as part of a 2021-2022 Jazz Series subscription package. Subscribe today at dso.org/jazz.
