Fall Into Jazz: Celebrating Billy May's Centennial

The Glass City Swing Band present, Fall Into Jazz: Celebrating Billy May's Centennial. Billy May, an arranger and composer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, would have been 100 years old on November 10, 2016; thus, the Glass City Swing Band found it very fitting to put together a concert centered around his life.

Even if you've never heard of Billy May, you know him, he has established a relationship with a good number of the top performers of the 1930's and 1940's such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and the Glenn Miller Orchestra. He was also known to use a bit of satire in his arrangements and compositions making them stand out from the standard arrangements of the day.

The performance will be held Thursday, November 10 at 7:30 p.m. in the Science Hall Theater located on the Westmoreland County Community College campus in Youngwood, PA. Admission $12.

PCA logo Fall Into Jazz: Celebrating Billy May's Centennial was made possible through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and the Pennsylvania Rural Arts Alliance.
