Please join the Jazz staff from the Elder Conservatorium in recreating jazz giant Charlie Parker’s ‘Bird with Strings’ recording.  Originally released in 1950, the double album was Parker’s greatest commercial success, juxtaposing a small string section with a traditional jazz rhythm section on a variety of jazz standards including Stella by Starlight, April in Paris, Out of Nowhere and many others.
