Chelsea McBride's Socialist Night School: The Twilight Fall Album Release Party!
It is, finally, time.
A double big band event. The hottest big band leaders under 25. Original music, evocative, picturesque, and not to be missed in this extraordinary event at Lula Lounge.
Chelsea McBride's Socialist Night School, after five years of performance around Toronto, release our first full-length album, "The Twilight Fall". It begins in a daydream, with your six-year-old self, falling through a purple sky with orange clouds. You explore this otherworldly place, find new friends, encounter many challenges, but underpinning it all is the rushing motion of the train, taking you away to work, or home, or love. "The Twilight Fall" is the first Browntasauras Records release of 2017, and is funded in part by The Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent On Recordings (FACTOR) and the Toronto Arts Foundation.
Chelsea McBrides Socialist Night School is a Toronto, Canada based 19 piece modern jazz orchestra led by a fast-rising, 24 year old orchestration trail-blazer Chelsea McBride, whose melody driven big band compositions often mask the complexity of their internal structures. Award-winning veterans like William Carn, Colleen Allen and Brownman Ali stand next to the citys hottest 20-somethings in this contemporary modern big band. Bandleader Chelsea McBrides complex original compositions have been called picturesque, cinematic and joyful by media, and are influenced by the lineage of Bob Brookmeyer, Maria Schneider and Darcy James Argue. The Socialist Night School is a storytelling vehicle for McBrides evocative writing style.
Opening up the evening will be Mason Victoria's SSJO - SONUSKAPOS Jazz Orchestra. SONUSKAPOS is a 18 piece big band led by Mason Victoria. Comprising of many jazz musicians currently attending school for music, SONUSKAPOS aims to give the opportunity for band members to write and play amongst peers in a large ensemble setting. Striving for unique collaboration, the big band plays many different styles of big band music from class swing era to borderline experimental.
