Dan will bring few selections from his vinyl collection of over 6,000 records from the big band era. Amanda will be speaking about the American Big Band Preservation Society, an educational organization dedicated to collecting and archiving arrangements of the big bands, which are made available to high school and college music departments free of charge. The American Big Band Preservation Society also holds clinics in the greater Worcester area to teach students about big band playing, history, and the present and future of the big bands.
