The late fall months may bring early dark nights, but all the more reason to lighten up a Friday evening with great swingin’ jazz. Five Play, the quintet of DIVA Jazz, surely fits that description with its roots in the jazz tradition and inspired by the members’ collective, creative vision to swing through the twenty-first century.
The quintet’s repertoire is comprised of innovative arrangements of classic and contemporary standards. In addition, band members compose, arrange, and play their own original music. This full library of powerful ensemble pieces highlights the distinctive, unique styles of each individual.
Leader and drummer Sherrie Maricle is the music director. And the diverse sounds of the group are provided by Tomoko Ohno, piano; Amy Shook, bass; Jami Dauber, trumpet; and Leigh Pilzer, baritone and soprano sax/clarinet.
Admission is $10 for everyone except all students are admitted free. Tickets can be purchased the evening of the concert at the box office which opens at 6:15pm, or online anytime with a $2.50 service charge per ticket at www.sunyorange.edu/arts_comm/ticketing.shtml
