The Legendary Count Basie Orchestra

February 10

7:30 PM @ University of Dubuque Heritage Center

Nearly 30 years after his passing, pianist and bandleader William James “Count” Basie is an American institution that personifies the grandeur and excellence of jazz. Count Basie is the only bandleader in the history of jazz to have his orchestra still performing sold out concerts internationally. During their record-breaking tenure, the Count Basie Orchestra has scored 18 Grammy Awards, performed for royalty, and featured some of the greatest soloists in music history. Rapidly-paced fanfare filled with groove and Louisiana-inspired dirty trombone licks make this lively performance a momentous and rare treat for audiences of all ages. Visit DBQ.edu/HeritageCenter.
