Rock, Strings & Horns: A Concert For Violet

Rock, Strings & Horns: A Concert For Violet

SSU Jazz Studies Director Doug Leibinger grew up in the 70’s and early 80’s in suburban Chicago, where he and his mother, Violet, spent countless hours listening to the radio and LPs. Violet passed away six years ago from complications of early onset Alzheimer’s disease. This concert is dedicated to her memory, and features many of her favorite songs arranged for large jazz ensemble with strings and voices. We hope you will join us for this amazing event –and sing along!
