The Nineteen Jazz Orchestra in association with The Tabard Theatre Company is pleased to announce the return of the South Bay Composers Concert. This concert, originally conceived and hosted by Gus Kambeitz and San Jose Jazz back in 2009, offers an amazing opportunity for composers of any age to have their compositions realized and performed by a professional big band jazz ensemble. This time around we are welcoming more options for composers. Not only will we be accepting big band or other jazz compositions with all the parts orchestrated and arranged, but this year we are accepting submissions for compositions that may need arrangement assistance and may only have a few parts to be performed by a small group. Acceptance of compositions will be based on uniqueness, creativity and artistic impression and will be performed live by Nineteen Jazz Orchestra.
