7:30pm – LEADING LADIES BIG BAND UNDER THE DIRECTION OF CASEY THOMAS-BURNS

The closing of the LIVE @ The Shaw series is sure to please. What better way to get ready for International Jazz Day (April 30) then by featuring The Leading Ladies, a Vancouver-based, 11-piece big band.  Directed by trombonist Casey Thomas-Burns, this dynamic and vibrant group of young women first came together to perform a single show in 2019. They’ve stuck together ever since. Recently returned from their 2023 West Coast Tour, this band has been named as one to watch on the Canadian jazz scene. These fine musicians present a rare musical blend of classic and modern jazz, showcasing treasured pieces from the big band era alongside modern-day originals. You can expect to hear new takes on classic favorites, music by local and Canadian composers, and maybe even a few things you’ve never hear before as the band regularly debuts new pieces by emerging composers.
