The MacEwan University Big Band, now in its 46th year, is the flagship ensemble of the Department of Music. Students gain experience performing historical and contemporary big band music. For 36 seasons it has been under the directorship of Professor Raymond Baril, and during that time it has had the distinct opportunity of working with internationally renowned musicians such as Maria Schneider, Bob Mintzer, Eddie Daniels, Ernie Watts, Dizzy Gillespie, as well as Edmonton’s own Tommy Banks and PJ Perry. They have been a featured ensemble at the Edmonton International Jazz Festival and music festivals across Canada and the US.

This one hour and a half live-streamed concert will feature the music from the libraries of Maria Schneider, Sammy Nestico, Ellen Rowe, Gordon Goodwin, Thad Jones, Patti Darling and Steely Dan, and by composers and arrangers such as Shirley Horn, Joni Mitchell, Tony Succar and MacEwan alumni, Stephanie Urquhart.
