An Evening with Tierney Sutton and the RJO
Chuck Reider, Music Director.
Performing the best of the Great American Song Book from Cole Porter to Joni Mitchell, the 17-piece Reno Jazz Orchestra will share the stage with GRAMMY jazz-vocalist nominee Tierney Sutton. Don’t miss this swinging night of big band jazz and enduring songs spiced with Tierney’s charisma. She embraces the American songbook by interpreting them in her own unique way making them her own. Known as a ‘serious jazz artist who takes music to another level,’ Sutton’s award-winning style will complement the veteran talents of the Reno Jazz Orchestra whose members have traveled the world with legendary performers.
Several members of the Reno Jazz Orchestra are also University of Nevada, Reno faculty members in the Department of Music. Currently, music faculty members include Doug Coomler, tenor sax, Andy Heglund, drums, Hans Halt, bass, and Joey Berger, guitar.
