Hailed by The New York Times as “Goodman straight up with a twist of lightning,” New York City jazz clarinetist and Benny Goodman alumnus Ken Peplowski is featured with the highly acclaimed Capitol Center Jazz Orchestra to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Benny Goodman’s historical 1938 jazz concert at New York City’s famed Carnegie Hall. This revolutionary performance claimed a new place for jazz on the American cultural scene and has come to be seen as the most important jazz concert in history.
This incredible evening with today’s premier jazz clarinetist will feature numerous classics from Goodman’s historic 1938 performance, including “Don’t Be That Way”, “Memories of You” and, of course, the iconic “Sing, Sing, Sing.”
Music Director Clayton Poole has said, “We are truly excited that we will be presenting this incredible music to many different venues in our upcoming East Coast tour with our guest artist, Benny Goodman alumnus, Mr. Ken Peplowski. We will collectively breathe new life into those classic 30’s and 40’s era hits and expose a whole new audience to this wonderful music and the spontaneity of big band swing … live!”
The concert will be at USCB Center for the Arts on Friday, September 27 at 7:30 p.m. For concert and ticket information, contact Tammy Gates at 843-521-4145 or go online at uscbcenterforthearts.com.
