Conejo “Pops” Orchestra with Elmer Ramsey and his trumpet performs music from some of the greatest artists of the big band era: Artie Shaw, Harry James, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Count Basie, Les Brown and Duke Ellington. Featured performers are Nancy Osborne and Ned Rifken, vocalists, and Dan Geeting, clarinetist.
Ramsey, a CLU professor emeritus of music, began playing trumpet professionally at the age of 14 and, three years later, had his own ’40s-style big band on a Washington radio station. Many members of his orchestra are CLU alumni and have also performed with Harry James, Glenn Miller and Tex Beneke orchestras.
General admission is $20. Admission is free for students, faculty and staff with CLU ID, and $10 for other students.
