Hard Rubber Orchestra, Rub Harder CD Release and Tour Launch
Canada’s most powerful and exciting, all-star ensemble is back! On Wednesday, April 10 at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre, the Hard Rubber Orchestra will perform the eclectic, high energy music of John Korsrud, Jean Derome and Brad Turner. This concert celebrates the release of the Orchestra’s second CD, Rub Harder and the launch of its coast-to-coast tour.
As well as being three incredible musicians, Korsrud, Turner and Derome are excellent craftmen in music composition. Highly regarded in their respective scenes, each draws on a wide variety of influences: world, contemporary classical, jazz, pop, improvisation, and other genres to create great and really groovy music.
The Hard Rubber Orchestra, consisting of 17 of the finest jazz soloists on the West Coast, will also be appearing in concert in Halifax on April 19 and in Montreal on April 20.
