Swing’s the thing, as we crack open the songbooks of Benny Goodman,
Glenn Miller and the Dorsey Brothers for a set of fabulous big band
repertoire. Even more toe-tapping is guaranteed with our lyrical
salute to Superman, plus a feast of folk tunes and a tribute to the
inimitable Tina Turner.
Then enter RISING STAR Ernesto
Cervini, a startling young talent of Etobicoke roots, best known during his
formative years as the “one to watch” in the popular
Big Band. Now carving his musical future in New York City, Ernesto
will return to his home town to dazzle us with his fluency and
finesse on clarinet, piano and drums.
