Resurrecting a Peninsula Big Band

Jason Palmer, music director of the Peninsula Symphonic Band, is seeking adult and high school musicians to form a big band. In the ’90s, the Peninsula Jazz Band – an off-shoot of the Peninsula Symphonic Band – performed at functions around the peninsula, and Palmer is looking to resurrect the jazz band and make it a key part of the area’s arts scene.

“I don’t really have any preconceived notions as to when such an ensemble might rehearse and/or perform,” Palmer said. “I just want to float the idea out there and gauge the interest from area musicians. We will probably have an informational meeting to develop plans for the ensemble if there is enough interest expressed.”
