Join the Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra (SJO) for an enriching and unique musical tribute with our concert, "When the Spirit Moves You: Ellington’s Sacred Music". This special event showcases the always evocative and borderline-sacred music of the legendary Duke Ellington, as interpreted by acclaimed Canadian conductor and friend of the SJO, Fred Stride.
We’re especially thrilled to have the opportunity to feature the breathtaking and award-winning Canadian vocal talent of Dee Daniels, along with the angelic voices of Saskatoon's Aurora Voce mixed choir. Together alongside the SJO, these vocalists will help to infuse Ellington’s music with modern vitality and depth.
One of the highlights of this concert will be a special tribute to one of Canada's own "First Ladies of Jazz," Elleanor Collins. We will include her iconic rendition of Look To The Rainbow in our program, adding a distinctive Canadian touch to our IJD celebrations.
We hope you’ll join us to be a part of this unforgettable evening as we pay homage to the influential figures of jazz and explore the depth of this powerful music form that speaks to our minds, bodies, and souls.
