The Mission Playhouse presents the Alan Chan Jazz Orchestra Saturday afternoon, February 10th at 3:00pm.
During the Lunar New Year Festival, join us inside the Playhouse for a free performance from the Alan Chan Jazz Orchestra! Founded in 2011, the 17 piece orchestra “…is a well oiled machine and one that moves and acts like no other…” (allaboutjazz.com). Born and raised in Hong Kong, Composer/Conductor Chan’s compositions draw on elements of both European classical music and the sounds of his Chinese heritage. “Inspired and inspiring, Alan Chan digs deep within himself to create music that transcends traditional genre…” (criticaljazz.com). He has “given Los Angeles a jazz big band with an utterly unique tonal personality.” (DownBeat Magazine).
