The Calgary Creative Arts Ensemble is Calgary’s newest jazz big band. The CCAE features musicians who collaborate with international performers and composers in order to bring exciting, dynamic new music to Calgary audiences.
The mission of the CCAE is to provide a platform in which local, regional and national jazz musicians can explore and develop Canadian music for large jazz ensemble. The CCAE also features many of Calgary’s talented composers, and fortunately has much of that talent within the band. On Thursday, April 2nd the CCAE will premiere a brand new work that features the writing talents of trumpet section leader Andre Wickenheiser in addition to works by the great Canadian jazz composers and members of the local Calgary jazz community.
