Enjoy the sounds of Big Band Swing with the eighteen member Skyliner Big Band. Though first made popular over 70 years ago, the big band swing sound has a popularity that spans the years. Swing has recently been rediscovered by a new generation. Originally founded by John Micalizio, a member of the Tommy Dorsey Band and arranger for George Shearing and other major recording artists, the Skyliner Big Band has, since 1952, remained true in style and composition - performing the arrangements of the great band leaders. The Sunday Concert will present the works of great band leaders of the 40's through the 90's with names like Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, and Count Basie. For many years, the Skyliner Big Band has given numerous concerts and dances, many of them in the New York metropolitan area. The Skyliners have performed at the major hotels like the Plaza, the St. Moritz, the Biltmore, the Essex, and the St. Regis, as well as private clubs, schools, and universities. The orchestra is currently under the direction of Bill Miranda. Experiences of other orchestra members are wide-ranging, with participation in other orchestras, jazz and classical music ensembles, or as soloists. The orchestra will feature our female vocalist, Tanya Garzia. She sings all styles of music from rock to pop and all styles in between. You will be delighted with her fluent musical style and vocal range. The concert is free. No tickets are necessary. Seats are on a "first come" basis.
