Larry’s contribution to Edmonton music education and performance is legendary. Tonight, under the leadership of J-F Picard, we showcase original music arrangements and compositions written for the band over the years. Come join us for a great night of big band jazz swing, Latin, ballads, and fusion by former Music Director and good friend, Larry Schrum!

The River City Big Band is one of the premier big bands in Alberta. They have performed throughout the province with artists including Eric Marienthal, Wayne Bergeron, Wycliff Gordon, Carol Welsman, Jens Lindeman, Bobby Shew, Vince Mai, Kent Sangster and Juno Award-winning artists Mike Murley, PJ Perry, Bobby Cairns and Tommy Banks. The repertoire of the RCBB is extensive, ranging from the big band standards of Duke Ellington and Stan Kenton to the music of some of today’s most popular contemporary jazz composers such as Gordon Goodwin and Edmonton’s own internationally renowned Allan Gilliland. The RCBB also plays original music and arrangements by past and current members of the band, including former Music Director and educator, Larry Schrum.
