The Victoria Jazz Orchestra, in this one night only event, performs the contemporary big band music of Toronto-based saxophonist/composer Chelsea McBride and her Socialist Night School. Driven by an endless need for expressing herself creatively, young composer and multi-instrumentalist Chelsea McBride has burst onto the Toronto jazz scene. Still only 24, McBride has performed at the TD Toronto Jazz Festival, Beaches Jazz Festival and the Rex Hotel. She’s also worked alongside many local jazz artists including Brownman Ali and William Carn and studied with acclaimed musicians David Occhipinti, Darcy James Argue and Mike Allen. Her Socialist Night School, an 18-piece big band with a modern edge, has performed at major venues across Toronto, including sold-out shows at Rex Hotel and the mainstage at the TD Toronto Jazz Festival.
