During the Lunar New Year Festival, join us inside the Playhouse for a free jazz performance from the Alan Chan Moo-sic Group Saturday afternoon, February 16th at 3:00pm! They will present a concert with exciting original tunes and arrangements to celebrate the Year of the Pig. Composer/Conductor Chan has “given Los Angeles a jazz big band with an utterly unique tonal personality.” (DownBeat Magazine).
Born and raised in Hong Kong, 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). The Grammy-nominated Brussels Jazz Orchestra, Millennium Jazz Orchestra (Netherlands), Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra, and La Jolla Symphony have all presented his works.
