From the classic and sophisticated Jazz standard “I Got Rhythm” to the witty and irreverent Beethoven’s Fifth Bossa Nova – which, thankfully for Beethoven’s sake, was arranged long after his death – these five versatile wind players, along with percussionist Kenneth Simpson, will showcase popular dance styles through the ages including ancient Hungary and Spanish Tango. Don’t forget your dancing shoes!
