Led by Claude Robinson and William Portis, the Conrad O. Johnson Regional Youth Orchestra shares the spotlight with "The Shellman" (jazz trombonist Steve Turre of Saturday Night Live) in "A Tribute to the Big Band Era: Igniting The Flame; Passing The Torch." The show will feature original compositions and arrangements by Conrad O. Johnson as well as classics from other big band greats, such as Glenn Miller and Duke Ellington.
