Turning Point: Jump for Joy! – From Ellington & Stravinsky to Douglas & Turner

You don’t want to miss this Turning Point Ensemble blockbuster, genre-busting concert Jump for Joy! – an evening that explores the connections between the worlds of jazz and classical music in the early 20th century and the present day.

The music of Duke Ellington and Igor Stravinsky, arguably the two most influential musicians of the first half of the 20th century, at times reveals uncanny similarities. Turning Point presents Ellington’s “The Clothed Woman” and “On a Turquoise Cloud” in arrangements by Fred Stride alongside Stravinsky’s Tango, Pastorale, and Octet. Jazz vocalist Jennifer Scott joins the ensemble to perform both Ellington and Stravinsky.

And in a major event connecting Vancouver and New York City, Turning Point Ensemble is delighted to present a premiere from two-time Grammy nominated jazz musician Dave Douglas,arguably the most prolific and original trumpeter/composer of his generation.

The program is completed with a new commission by one of British Columbia’s most versatile and highly-esteemed musicians, multi-instrumentalist/composer Brad Turner.

Presented in partnership with the Langley Community Music School
Generously supported by Macquarie Private Wealth, Inc., ArtsFACT Foundation and Coastal Jazz and Blues Society

The ‘dead of winter’ which occurs between the fall and spring equinox can describe a bleak time, both in nature and in our lives.  In the natural world, however, this period is not one of death as much as dormancy, when life hibernates, waiting for the warmth and light of spring to signal a time for rebirth, growth, and a flowering and fruition of purpose.  So with our interior lives. What might feel dead in us may in fact be simply dormant, and despite our perennial doubts, darkness gradually yields to light and new life.

The  selection of songs about autumn and spring remind us that every season of the year and of our lives contributes its own beauty and worth. We can ‘winter through’ a time of dormancy with confidence that what is unrealized in our lives will spring forth in a joyous season of surprises. The falling leaves of autumn signalling winter’s approach shall yield to spring and ‘glorious summer’.

The concerts include pieces by Canadian composers Stephen Chatman, Eleanor Daley, Elizabeth Knudson and Wade Hemsworth (arr. Ron Smail). Other composers are Morten Lauridsen, Passereau, Jules Massenet, Vaughan Williams and Astor Piazzolla.
