KCC PRODUCTIONS AND PINECREST GARDENS PRESENT THE SOUTH FLORIDA JAZZ ORCHESTRA, FEATURING LISANNE LYONS, SATURDAY OCTOBER 27
(Published: October 23, 2012)

KCC Productions presents the South Florida Jazz Orchestra, featuring vocalist Lisanne Lyons, at Pinecrest Gardens' Banyan Bowl October 27 at 8 PM. Pinecrest Gardens is located at 11000 SW 57th Ave. Tickets are $20.

The SOUTH FLORIDA JAZZ ORCHESTRA is a modern Big Band comprising some of the best jazz musicians, studio musicians, and Jazz educators in the southeastern part of the United States. Their eclectic repertoire includes many original compositions by band members, as well as classic charts from such greats as Thad Jones, Charles Mingus, John Clayton, Maria Schneider, Jim McNeely, John Fedchock, and many more, all influenced by their diverse backgrounds and experiences in the South Florida music community. In June of 2006 renowned bassist and composer, Chuck Bergeron gathered a select group of top-notch Miami-based musicians and formed the first professional jazz rehearsal big band in the Greater Miami/South Florida area. On the evening of October 4th this sixteen-piece big band took the stage at the Arturo Sandoval Jazz Club, making their first professional debut as the new South Florida Jazz Orchestra. In a town known more for its salsa music than jazz, this performance marked a bold attempt to fill a long existing void in the local jazz scene. The establishment of a professional orchestra playing traditional big band music in this community is in many ways an historic musical event.

Lisanne Lyons teaches Studio Music and Jazz at the University of Miami's Frost School of Music. She has produced two solo CD's and two CD's as lead soprano in the DC-based Uptown Vocal Jazz Quartet, with whom she performed at major jazz festivals across the country and abroad. She also performs with "Mad Romance", a four-voice a capella group. Lisanne is the recipient of several DownBeat awards as a jazz vocal soloist, jazz vocal choir director, and most recently as a jazz arranger. She is in demand as a performer, arranger, adjudicator and clinician. Lisanne has headlined at the Ottawa, Detroit, and Clearwater Jazz Festivals, and La Nuit du Jazz (France). She was the first to perform live the Nelson Riddle arrangements of the George Gershwin Songbook that he wrote for Ella Fitzgerald, who only recorded them. She is currently working on a new show, a tribute to the great vocalists Rosemary Clooney, Peggy Lee, Anita O'Day, Ella Fitzgerald, and others.
