Composers Concordance – CompCord Big Band
The CompCord Big Band returns to The Cutting Room to premiere ten brand new compositions for this classic instrumentation. Composers Concordance takes the genre of big band music to untrodden destinations, transforming what one recognizes as the standard swing sound by combining it with contemporary compositional techniques, and bending traditional rules with atypical arrangements.

Featuring compositions by Aaron Alter, Richard Sussman, Franz Hackl, John Clark, Gene Pritsker, Dan Cooper, Melanie Mitrano, Gerson Galante, Carlton Holmes, Alon Nechushtan, and Scott Hoefling.

The program will be performed by some of NYC's most virtuosic, multigenre-minded musicians:

Franz Hackl, Peter Oswald, Wayne J. Du Maine, Dennis Hernandez - trumpets;
John Clark - horn;
Mike Seltzer, David Whitwell, Jonathan Greenberg - trombones;
Gerson Galante, Paul Jones, Paul Carlon, Scott Hoefling, Mercedes Beckman - saxophones;
Richard Sussman - piano;
Lawrence Goldman - bass;
Joe Abba - drums;
Melanie Mitrano - voice;
Gene Pritsker - conductor.
