Contemporary Jazz Orchestra
Sun, June 11, 2017, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM PDT
SummerJazz opens its 7th season with a benefit concert supporting the Assistance League of Los Altos HOME apartments for outpatients at Stanford Hospital.
We're proud to welcome Contemporary Jazz Orchestra, led by veteran saxophonist and arranger Tod Dickow. Join us for an evening of fine jazz beside the vines!
CJO includes an all-star cast of Bay Area musicians and has performed at the Monterey Jazz Festival, Fillmore Street Jazz Festival, KCSM's Jazz on the Hill, Spreckels Performing Arts Series, KXJZ's Waterfront concerts, SF's Black and White Ball and Yoshi's Jazz House. The 16pc Jazz Orchestra features music from the Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Orchestra, Oliver Nelson, and Charles Mingus bands as well as original arrangements and compositions from members of the band.
Half of profits from the event will be donated to the Assistance League HOME program. In addition to our usual ticket offering, there are also available $50 tickets supporting the League. 100% of the incremental ticket price for those tickets will be donated to the League.
We'll pour tastes of our wines, and we invite you to bring a picnic. Wine will also be available for purchase by the bottle.
The concert begins at 6pm. We’re open from 5:00 to 8:00. Picnic tables are not available; feel free to bring a blanket to spread on the ground, or beach chairs. Please consider carpooling or bicycling, as parking is very limited.
