Featuring Katherine Byrnes, vocalist & Jeff Haskell, piano
Arizona Symphony Orchestra & UA Studio Jazz Ensemble conducted by Thomas Cockrell, Nelson Riddle Endowed Chair in Music

The Nelson Riddle Archive at the University of Arizona holds a treasure of arrangements by one of America’s preeminent figures in popular music of the 1950s and 60s. The Arizona Symphony Orchestra and UA Studio Jazz Ensemble join forces and welcome UA alumna vocalist Katherine Byrnes for an elegant evening of arrangements originally written for Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole and Linda Ronstadt. Big band and symphonic orchestra unite in the great finale, Riddle’s “Adam and Eve” ballet from the 1960 film “Can-Can.”
