In September 2016 sees iconic New Zealand jazz orchestra the Rodger Fox

Big Band present 12 concerts throughout New Zealand along-side the

New Zealand Symphony Orchestra for yet another groundbreaking series of

concerts.

In keeping with the big bands tradition international trumpet star

Allen Vizzutti has been secured as the tours special guest. Allen Vizzutti is a

graduate of the Eastman School of Music and is equally at home in both the

classical and jazz styles. In the jazz style Allen performed with the famed

Woody Herman Thundering Herd and Chick Corea.

The concert series repertoire will be drawn from a wide range of Jazz, Latin

and Popular big band material. The big band has commissioned

international acclaimed composer/arranger Matt Harris to contribute a

work called “The Red Zone”. This is a tour de force for both the big band

and orchestra covering many styles. Classics such as A Night In Tunisia, Take

The A Train and a Westside Story Suite will be presented along side stella

arrangements of New Zealand pop classics Royals and Wandering Eye.

 

Sizzling ensemble playing, stunning soloists and the desire to give people a

good time through music.
