10 World Premieres in our Composers Showcase
Saturday, Feb. 25, 2023, 7:30pm
The Berkshire Museum
39 South St., Pittsfield, Mass.
Berkshires Jazz has commissioned 10 original works, one each from 10 composers, to be performed in concert as part of Pittsfield’s 10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival. That’s right, 10 world premieres in one evening.
An all-star trio of Eugene Uman, piano; Mary Ann McSweeney, bass; and Conor Meehan, drums, will perform the new works, joined by the composer and one or more of their composing colleagues.
An exciting and busy year for jazz

This was such an extraordinary event. The NEA Jazz Master and trombonist par excellence appeared as guest soloist with one of the top big bands in New England and all of academia.
