Composer Marie Incontrera leads the Eco-Music Big Band in a tribute to her mentor, composer and baritone saxophonist Fred Ho, who passed away earlier this year. The Eco-Music Big Band is a 15-piece, multi-generational big band that is committed to continuing the prodigious compositional and creative legacy of Fred Ho. The ensemble also performs the works of the overlooked composers of 20th century (such as Cal Massey), and provides a platform for the next generation of big band composers. This evening will tribute the life and work of Fred Ho by featuring his works as well as the works of Cal Massey, of his final composition protege Marie Incontrera, and of young, Canadian-native big band composer, Liberte-Anne Lymberiou.

The Eco-Music Big Band:
Saxophones (ATTB): Jay Rodriguez, Livio Almeida, Alejandro Aviles,
Larry Bustamante.
Trumpets: Bryan Davis, Mark McGowan, Nabate Isles, Adam O’Farrill
Trombones: David Whitwell, David Taylor
Violin: Julianne Carney
Cello: Gabriel Dresdale
Piano: Albert Marques
Electric Bass: Amanda Ruzza

On the same bill: composer and percussionist Warren Smith continues his yearlong celebration of his 80th birthday with the premiere of his new Symphonic Quartet, with Sonelius Smith (piano & keyboard), James Stewart (woodwinds), Ratzo Harris (bass and cello), and Warren Smith on multiple percussion. The group will present a new hour-long composition, “Songs and Poems of ReReconstruction”. The title refers to similarities of current national and political activities in the US with those of the mid-19th century (postbellum).
