The Strathclyde University Big Band featuring vocalist Janine Capaldi
Director: Ronnie MacNiven
The Strathclyde University Big Band is one of only a few long-standing University-based big bands in Britain and has established a reputation for playing varied, interesting and challenging music.
Since the band's formation in 1978, many dozens of musicians have passed through its ranks. The members of the band are mostly current or former students, staff or ex-staff of the University, together with a few enthusiastic friends from outwith the University. Notable alumni include Tom MacNiven, Paul Towndrow, Konrad Wiszniewski and Alyn Cosker, all current members of the SNJO.
The band's extensive repertoire is jazz-orientated and includes, for example, arrangements of jazz standards by John Coltrane, Nat Adderley, Thelonious Monk, Hank Mobley, Benny Golson, Charlie Parker, Freddie Hubbard and Kenny Dorham.
The concert will also feature the wonderful Janine Capaldi singing well-known standards with the band.
