The One and Only Tommy Dorsey Orchestra
The Lewis and Clark High School Instrumental Music Parents’ Association (LCIMPA) is bringing this legendary Big Band to the Bing! This legendary, swing era, Big Band will take the stage at the Bing and transport you back in time. Known as the “Sentimental Gentleman of Swing,” and undeniably one of the best all-around dance bands they mastered creating smooth, brilliantly composed arrangements at superb dance and listening tempos. A few selections include “Once in a While,” “Marie,” “Opus One” and “Boogie Woogie.”
The Orchestra has given Lewis and Clark Jazz One Ensemble the rare honor of opening the show. They will tackle the difficult music of Radiohead’s “Bodysnatchers,” as well as other compositions
This is an opportunity to come listen to the sounds of the great Tommy Dorsey Orchestra while supporting LCIMPA. Through the success of this concert the organization will be able to provide uniforms and scholarships, help with travel expenses and more for the Lewis and Clark music department.
