Following the tremendous success of the inaugural concert in September ’08, Bryan will be returning to play with the Lower Austria Concert Jazz Orchestra for their 2009 Tours. Details are now confirmed for the first tour in March ’09. Venues are as follows:-
- 16th March ’09 – Radiokulturhaus Wien (Vienna)
- 17th March ’09 – Stadtsaal Mistelbach
- 18th March ’09 – Stadtsaal Zwettl
- 19th March ’09 – Stadtsaal Waidhofen/Ybbs
- 21st March ’09 – Schloss Reichenau
- 22nd March ’09 – Schloss Grafenegg
There is also a tour planned in the Autumn, again throughout Austria. The dates are likely to be from September 26th – October 3rd. Following that tour, there is a trip being planned to perform at the “11th China Shanghai International Arts Festival” in Shanghai, China (funnily enough). This trip is pencilled in from 22nd – 30th October ’08 and is likely to include two concerts in the Festival as well as some other events, and hopefully some sightseeing!
For all the concerts in 2009, the LACJO will be performing it’s “Murdering the Classics” programme, featuring Big Band arrangements of famous ‘Classical’ works. Included is the Stan Kenton version of Leonard Bernstein’s “West Side Story” amongst others. The first concert in September was recorded and will be released on CD in the Spring – hopefully to coincide with the March tour. More details on that as we have them….
