Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue

Funk, Jazz, R&B/Soul

Part Jimi Hendrix, part James Brown and all New Orleans, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews is the bandleader and frontman of Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, a hard-edged funk band that employs brass-band beats, rock dynamics and improvisation in a jazz tradition. NPR hailed him as “New Orleans’ brightest new star in a generation,” and New York Magazine wrote that “Trombone Shorty takes in a century-plus worth of sounds—ragtime and jazz and gospel and soul and R&B and hip-hop—and attacks everything he plays with festive fervor.” A 2011 GRAMMY Award nominee for his album Backatown (Verve), Andrews’ virtuosity and high-energy live shows have drawn unanimous raves worldwide with Rolling Stone calling him a “must-see act.”

Jake Shimabukuro


Virtuoso and iconic ukulele rock star returns by popular demand. Shimabukuro has singularly altered expectations for his instrument. From his early days in Hawaii to a viral sensation playing George Harrison's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" on YouTube, his album has reached #1 in Billboard's Top World Music Albums. From collaborations with Alan Parsons to Jimmy Kimmel Live! and a PBS documentary about his life, Shimabukuro’s career makes a significant statement: the ukulele, with its humble four strings and modest two-octave range, is limited only by the imagination and creativity of the person playing it. In Shimabukuro’s hands, it is easy to believe the ukulele is capable of anything.

Symphony Tacoma: Rainier Sunrise

Orchestral, Classical

Sarah Ioannides, Conductor | Svend Ronning, Violin & Thane Lewis, Viola. Elegant and melodic works attributed to chamber music. Rainier Sunrise by Seattle native Karel Butz “captures the peaceful emotions associated with the grandeur and beauty of Mount Rainier’s Sunrise Trail.” Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite was originally written as a ballet reconstructed from Baroque compositions by Giambattista Pergolesi. Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll was a birthday gift to his wife and dedicated to their newborn son, Siegfried.

Symphony Tacoma: Saxophone Fusion

Orchestral, Classical, Jazz

Sarah Ioannides, Conductor | James Carter, Saxophone. Diverse cultures and rare influences present a wide representation of our society. Fanny Mendelssohn’s Overture in C was her only-known full orchestral work, written at a time when musical careers were considered inappropriate for women. Puerto Rico native Roberto Sierra’s Caribbean Rhapsody, written for saxophone virtuoso James Carter, combines classical and Latin jazz influences. Poulenc’s satirical Sinfonietta represents works by Les Six, a group of young composers who sought to free French music from foreign domination in post-World War I Europe. Milhaud’s La Création du Monde tells the creation story according to African folk mythology with influences of Harlem Renaissance jazz and a multimedia film with art visuals, from African tribal sculptures to works by Picasso and Gaugin.

Symphony Tacoma: Ode to Joy

Classical, Orchestral, Choral

Sarah Ioannides, Conductor | Symphony Tacoma Voices. Grand finale. Beethoven’s remarkable Symphony No. 9 was the longest and most complex symphony of its time and has been referred to as “the symphony to end all symphonies.” It was first composition to include chorus and vocal soloists with the inclusion of Friedrich Schiller’s Ode to Joy in the final movement, making it one of the most recognized melodies of all time.
