About

This year’s festive Big Band show is something very special indeed… In 1938, Benny Goodman and his Orchestra gave the première performance by a jazz orchestra in New York City’s citadel of ‘high’ culture, the hallowed Carnegie Hall. Goodman and his supporting cast claimed a new place for jazz on the American cultural scene that night, in what has come to be seen as the most important jazz concert in history. Tonight, Pete Long will join the RNCM Big Band to recreate this landmark concert.
