When the Eastman Studio Orchestra takes the stage under the baton of Director Bill Dobbins, the program will include three arrangements by three ESM jazz writing majors: Julian Tanaka's treatment of Thad Jones's "Quietude"; Jon Rarick's of the standard, "A Portrait of Jenny"; and George Darrah's of another standard, "Too Close for Comfort." Also on tap are Bill Holman's arrangement of Lee Kontiz's "Thingin'"; Dobbins' arrangement of Duke Ellington's "Reminiscing In Tempo"; and an original composition and arrangement by Dave Rivello, "Remembering the Beginning." Rivello will conduct the piece, which also features dancer Brianna Williams.
