Christopher Zuar, composer, conducting the Christopher Zuar Orchestra at the Opening Concert on October 25th, 2018. Christopher arranged his big band suite for a nonet (9-piece ensemble) for this special occasion. We brought NYC-based musicians Glenn Zaleski (piano), Mark Ferber (percussion), Sara Caswell (violin), and Matt Holman (trumpet); and were fortunate to work with Chicago musicians Corbin Andrick (alto saxophone), Rich Moore (tenor saxophone), Tom Garling (trombone), Dave Miller (guitar), and Evan Levine (bass).
