The evening will include a performance by a specifically assembled faculty/alumni/student big band under the direction of Raymond Baril.

They will be joined by local musicians and MacEwan graduates including Jim Brenan, Doug Berner, Jeremiah McDade, Matt Michielin, Remi Noel, Ken Read and Matt White.
