Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - As a big supporter of the arts in Puerto Vallarta, Act II Entertainment is excited to present a performance by the Salty Paw Jazz Orchestra for one night only on Sunday, December 3rd at 8:00 pm.
Led by director Victor Kris, the Salty Paw Jazz Orchestra started as a youth-based advanced workshop where students learned how to express themselves artistically through improvisation. It quickly evolved into a full jazz ensemble – and expanded beyond the usual jazz instrumentation to includes violins and flutes, which add innovative dimensions to the ensemble.
On December 3, the orchestra will present 'A Salty Winter,' featuring covers of many well-known songs that have been arranged in the style of a Big Band orchestra, as well as some solo performances by several terrific young musicians who have been learning how to improvise their solo style.
The Salty Paw Jazz Orchestra, which is part of the newly formed Asociación Civil (AC), Instituto de Artes Musicales Puerto Vallarta (I AM PV), is a privately-funded program that relies on fund raisers and donations from the community for financial support.
All of the proceeds Salty Paw receives from this show will be earmarked for their funding. Everyone is invited to attend and support these aspiring musicians. Everyone is invited to attend and support these aspiring young musicians.
