ECO JAZZ GALA 2023
June 23rd, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$15 – $600
A two-part magnificent musical night out!
The ECO JAZZ GALA is back! Join us at 6pm on June 23rd, 2023 at the beautiful Mount Vernon Canyon Club to support the Evergreen Chamber Orchestra and celebrate the mountain classical music community.
We will bring our incredible 2022-2023 Season to a close with an intimate gathering of the ECO community for an evening of world-class jazz, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and great times with friends. ECO’s Music Director William Hill will be performing two sets with his Grammy-nominated band Bill Hill and Friends, our silent auction will offer the opportunity to bid for unique items and memorable experiences, and we’ll be recognizing some of the amazing people from the ECO community that have made a significant impact throughout this season.
This year, the ECO Jazz Gala will feature two parts: first, from 6:00pm to 7:30pm, we will celebrate a successful 2022-2023 Season with hors d’oeuvres, our silent auction, and conversations with friends while Bill Hill and Friends perform a light swing / jazz set. Love to dance? Sign up for our first-ever swing dance competition! Enjoy a relaxed, intimate atmosphere and chat with Bill, his band, ECO musicians, board members, and other music-lovers from the ECO community.
Then, from 7:30pm to 9:00pm, the Grammy-nominated group Bill Hill and Friends will perform an avant-garde jazz-fusion set in a more traditional concert setting. This will be a truly memorable musical experience!
