Featuring Legendary Jazz Clarinetist and Saxophonist Ken Peplowski
[Vancouver, Washington, February 6, 2019] – The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to announce the return of celebrated jazz clarinetist and saxophonist Ken Peplowski for the VSO 4th Annual Evening of Jazz live benefit concert and dinner at 5:30 pm on Sunday, March 24th at Warehouse 23 on the Vancouver waterfront. Mr. Peplowski is an award-winning artist and has played with legendary musicians from Mel Torme and Peggy Lee to Madonna. From polka bands to the Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey Orchestras and eventually Dixieland and jazz, Ken Peplowski has done it all.
Experience Mr. Peplowski’s illustrious quartet as we transform Warehouse 23 into the Moulin Rouge – vast curtains of red, feathers, rhinestones, and sequins. Enjoy a catered evening of decadent Pacific Northwest cuisine, sparkling spirits, and red-hot jazz on a spacious dancefloor like the days of cabaret.
Tickets are $100, which include two complimentary tickets to the VSO April 13/14 Young Artists Concert.
Proceeds from this event benefit The VSO’s Education Initiative, focusing on extensive music education outreach programs that serve to empower students, educators and adults in our community.
