The Steve Hession Big Band: Big Band Theory

The Steve Hession Big Band in association with PODS present a gala concert in aid of The Young People’s Counselling Service, featuring very special guests

Peterborough musical legend Steve Hession brings his 18-piece professional Big Band to the Key Theatre on Sunday 25 June for an evening of song and dance from jazz standards to swing and pop. The Big Band Theory is a gala concert in aid of The Young People’s Counselling Service, a not-for-profit local organisation providing a free, confidential counselling service for 13 to 25 year olds living with depression, anxiety, stress, bullying, bereavement, abuse, low self-esteem and family or relationship problems.

The concert is produced in association with Peterborough’s multi-award-winning and oldest musical theatre company, Peterborough Operatic and Dramatic Society (PODS) who recently celebrated their 117th year with their highly successful, critically-acclaimed production of 9 to 5 at The Cresset.

Joining the Big Band and PODS will be special guests, West End star Donna Steele and the first ever BBC Young Musician Jazz Award winner, alto saxophonist Alex Bone. Steele is best known for playing Millie in Thoroughly Modern Millie in the West End and on national tour, as well as West End productions of The Full Monty and Peggy Sue Got Married. Bone, hailed as ‘excellent’ by Jamie Cullum and ‘amazing’ by Nile Rogers, is a saxophonist, pianist, composer, arranger and producer, who performed to millions on The Last Night of the Proms in 2015 and was crowned 2016’s British Jazz Awards ’Rising Star’. From Bublé to Broadway, an evening of auditory indulgence for the whole family in support of an amazing local cause.
