Powerful Hudson River Inspires Music

Irvington, NY – The 16-musician Westchester Jazz Orchestra will take a musical voyage down the Hudson River in April with the world premiere of a three-movement suite inspired by locations on the River.

The concert, titled “Americana,” will take place on Saturday, April 10 at 8 PM at the Irvington Town Hall Theater, 85 Main Street in Irvington, just a few blocks east of the Hudson. Reserved seating tickets are $35, $30 for seniors, $5 for students. A pre-concert talk with the composer begins at 7:15.

“Flow: In Celebration of the Hudson River,” written by the group’s artistic director and conductor, Mike Holober, begins with a passionate and dynamic tenor saxophone feature, “Tear of the Clouds,” continues with a slow jazz waltz, “Opalescence,” and ends with a bluesy Duke Ellington-inspired section, “Harlem.” The commission was funded by an Individual Artists grant from the New York State Council on the Arts.
