The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra (SNJO) is one of Europe’s foremost contemporary big bands. Founder and director Tommy Smith established the SNJO in 1995 as a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting jazz as a pre-eminent art form through performances, original compositions, recordings, and educational outreach. The SNJO has shared the stage with renowned jazz artists such as Bill Evans, Joe Lovano, John Scofield, Gary Burton, Bobby Watson, Dave Liebman, Kurt Elling, Kenny Wheeler, Makoto Ozone, and more. Tonight, the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra invites you to enjoy new swinging big-band jazz interpretations of Prokofiev’s popular classical work, Peter & the Wolf.

 

The SNJO will be joined by leading Scots actor Tam Dean Burn to create a wildly vivid jazz version of Prokofiev’s famous cautionary fable. Combining virtuosity and ingenuity with striking theatricality, it’s a delightful collision between a folk tale and big-band swing with the music woven around expressive dialogue adapted by former Scots Makar (National Poet of Scotland) Liz Lochhead. Though full of fresh ideas, Smith’s orchestration remains true to the composer’s much-loved musical characterizations while being energized by the creation of new inventive ideas inspired by the ingenuous original score.
