About Toronto All-Star Big Band:

One of the most exciting big bands around, the Toronto All-Star Big Band revives the spirit, style and sound of 1930s and '40s – that golden age of the big bands. Armed with brilliant programming, slick choreography and witty cultural nostalgia, this vibrant cast of awesome young talent has earned its position at the top of the list of presenters throughout Ontario and the US.

The Toronto All-Star Big Band provides one of the most intense and stimulating youth music programs in Canada. Behind their extraordinary entertainment, they engage cream-of-the-crop young musicians from across the GTA in a rigorous regime of rehearsals, workshops and a fantastic breadth of rich and skill-building performance experiences with international stars such as Buddy deFranco, Eddie Daniels, Larry Elgart, Clark Terry, Cleo Laine and John Dankworth. We have also worked with wonderfully talented Canadians like Peter Appleyard, Tommy Ambrose, Phil Nimmons, Oliver Jones, Ranee Lee, and the great Jackie Richardson.
