The Songs of West Side Story

Now, at the Bonnington Arts Centre on January 10 the “Jets” and the “Sharks” are about to get seriously jazzed up.

West Side Story, based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and featuring music of truly astounding beauty composed by Leonard Bernstein, is undoubtedly one of the most famous Broadway productions of all time.

Now, at the Bonnington Arts Centre on January 10 at 7:30 p.m., the “Jets” and the “Sharks” are about to get seriously jazzed up by Patrick MacGibbon and friends as they play “The Songs of West Side Story.” Oh, and in case you didn’t know, by “friends” we actually mean some of the finest jazz artists in British Columbia! Joining Patrick MacGibbon will be Kelowna’s Craig Thomson on saxophone and Neville Bowman on piano, Nelson’s Steven Parish on drums and Doug Stevenson on bass, and Revelstoke’s Bob Rogers on trombone.

Come on out and hear all of your favourite West Side Story tunes like “Maria,” “Somewhere,” “Tonight” and “America” (among others). We guarantee that you’ve never heard them done like this before! We’re going to cut loose and have some serious fun, all while preserving the core beauty and feeling of each of these well-loved and cherished musical numbers.

Get your tickets at the Bon Marche/Dollar Store for an evening of Jazz at the Bonnington Arts Centre starting at 7:30 p.m.  Doors open at 7 p.m.
