UVic Jazz and Creative Music Ensemble: The Music of Phil Nimmons

November 29, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Scott MacInnes, director

In the big band style, UVic’s Jazz and Creative Music Ensemble presents a concert featuring the music of Phil Nimmons to celebrate his 100th birthday! Phil Nimmons is often referred to as the “Dean of Canadian jazz,” and is known for his work as a clarinetist, bandleader, composer, arranger and educator. Kamloops-born Nimmons began his career in Vancouver in the 1940s after attending the Julliard School and the Royal Conservatory of Music. As a band leader he ran variations on “Nimmons ‘N’ Nine” and in 2002 he was the recipient of the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement for his more than six decades of contributions to the arts in Canada, including 45 years of service as an educator at the University of Toronto. Don’t miss this dynamic and energetic evening of jazz.
