The Chicago Composers’ Big Band
The Chicago Composers’ Big Band is showcasing their take on the Billboard Hot 100. For this concert, each piece in the program is an arrangement of a tune that has spent time at #1 on the Billboard Charts. The Chicago Composers' Big Band strives to present a diverse array of creative voices to a community that extends beyond the typical jazz big band audience. The members of CCBB come from a variety of backgrounds and are accomplished and creative as both writers and performers. Each performance of the ensemble is centered on a unique theme selected to give the members creative freedom in their writing as well as appeal to fans of music outside of jazz and big band music.
