The Chapel Restoration welcomes the New World Jazz Orchestra to Jazz at the Chapel. The New World Jazz Orchestra is a group of professional jazz musicians who all live in the Hudson Valley. They have travelled the world, playing with a virtual Who's Who of renowned jazz organisations, such as the Maria Schneider Orchestra, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, the Buddy Rich Orchestra, the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, and the Toshiko Akiyoshi Big Band. Each is a skilled soloist, and all are experienced ensemble players. Bringing their fresh take on jazz from its beginnings to the present day, they bring an exciting concert to the Chapel.
A group of friends who have played together professionally for many years, and who all eventually settled in the Hudson Valley, the NWJO will perform selections ranging from Scott Joplin to Chick Corea with their own unique take.
The musicians have played in a virtual Who’s Who of world-renowned jazz orchestras, including those of Maria Schneider, Vanguard Jazz, Tommy Dorsey, Buddy Rich, Miles Davis Alumni, Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestras and the Toshiko Akiyoshi Big Band.
The historic Chapel, a nonprofit 501c3 organization is not religiously affiliated. It is located at 45 Market Street, Cold Spring, NY across from the Metro-North train station. Parking is free on weekends.
