Victoria Big Band Performs Tribute Concert for Maynard Ferguson

Some of Canada’s finest jazz artists will hit the stage on Monday, September 18th, when the Monday Night Big Band will perform a concert celebrating the life of jazz legend Maynard Ferguson.

Featuring trumpeter Mike Herriott, the Band is pleased to have guest conductor Hugh Fraser (trombone) joining them for the event.

Maynard Ferguson, a Canadian jazz legend, passed away last week at the age of 78 after a career that lasted over five decades.

The popular group will honour the great musician in a performance at Hermann’s Jazz Club in Victoria.
