A Tribute to Jazz Artist Noel Kelehan

Don't miss this unique tribute concert on Sunday November 25 2012 inthe National Concert Hall. With special guest performances from Ellister Van der Molen on trumpet and Laura MacDonald on saxophone accompanying the Dublin City Jazz Orchestra this promises to be a night to remember.

Universally regarded as one of Ireland's greatest jazz pianists, composers, big band leaders and arrangers, this concert plays tribute to Noel Kelehan's contribution to the jazz music scene with a specially commissioned piece by Ronan Guilfoyle for Dublin City Jazz Orchestra. Formerly known as Dublin City Big Band, founded by Ciaran Wilde and Ray Martin in 2007, the band was established to encourage students at the Bally,un Wind Project in their musical studies. They later became known as the DublinCity Jazz Orchestra for a performance at Electric Picnic in 2008.
