ECSO and NLBB rehearsal clip - 1.29.20
31 Jan 2020
Here you can see the dynamic partnership between the ECSO and the New London Big Band (NLBB) in advance of our Saturday, February 1 concert at the Garde Arts Center in New London. The piece being rehearsed is "Social Hour", an homage to the New London Big Band's regular venue, the Social Bar + Kitchen. Our Music Director and Conductor, Toshiyuki Shimada is celebrating his 10th year with the ECSO and he has wanted to collaborate with this well-loved group for some time. Luckily, the leader of the NLBB, Sean Nelson, also shares a love for orchestral music and a match was made to perform a concert of American classics. Tickets are available at
