Enjoy a big band concert under the stars! Join us for a performance of Lenny Graf and His Platinum Orchestra at Mel Lastman Square in North York.
Big band is one of Belinda's favourite types of music. The summer big band concerts at Mel Lastman Square are usually excellent. You can dance to the music with or without a partner!
This 10-piece big band features upbeat 1920s, 1930s and 1940s dixieland, easy jazz and big band. Enjoy the music of heroes such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Benny Goodman. Band leader Lenny Graf studied jazz saxophone and classical flute at York University and is winner of the much coveted Grennick Award, among others. More information.
