RENOWNED JAZZ CLARINETIST KEN PEPLOWSKI RETURNS TO VANCOUVER FOR VSO EVENING OF LIVE JAZZ AT CLARK COLLEGE!
The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra is excited to announce the return of legendary jazz clarinetist and saxophonist Ken Peplowski for the VSO 3rd Annual Evening of Jazz live benefit concert at 5:30 pm on Saturday, April 28 in Gaiser Hall on the campus of Clark College in Vancouver.
Joining Mr. Peplowski will be the Clark College Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Rich Inouye. The evening’s Master of Ceremonies is OPB’s, Steve Bass.
Now in his third trip to Vancouver, the award-winning Mr. Peplowski wowed sold-out crowds in 2016 and 2017. He’s played with legendary musicians from Mel Torme and Peggy Lee to Madonna. From polka bands to the Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey Orchestras and eventually Dixieland and jazz, Ken’s done it all.
Catering will be by Vancouver favorite, Beaches restaurant.
Tickets are $100, with each ticket-holder receiving one complimentary ticket to any VSO concert beginning in March 2018.

Once inside Gaiser Hall, you’ll be transported back to the art deco days of The Great Gatsby, complete with cigar girls, gangsters, and red-hot jazz. Inside this speakeasy, you’ll get the full experience of nightclubs in the first half of the last century.
Proceeds from this event benefit The VSO’s Education Initiative, focusing on extensive music education outreach programs that serve to empower students, educators, and adults in our community.
Your partnership contributes to the profound impact we have on the lives of others, particularly those in underserved areas.

This event benefits The VSO, a non-profit orchestra, now in its 39th Season and conducted for the 27th straight season by Maestro Salvador Brotons.
