Chelsea McBride's Socialist Night School Chelsea McBride's Socialist Night School

Chelsea McBride’s Socialist Night School is a Toronto, Canada based 19 piece modern jazz orchestra led by fast-rising orchestration trail-blazer Chelsea McBride. Award-winning veterans like William Carn and Colleen Allen stand next to the city's hottest 20-somethings in this contemporary modern big band. The Socialist Night School is about to release their sophomore full-length album Aftermath, a concept album about conflict, on November 1, 2019. Their debut full-length album “The Twilight Fall” has been hailed by critics as “a dazzling set anyone with even an interest in big band should check out” (Chris Spector – Midwest Record), “a progressive jazz epic...a musical experience that delights in many ways” (Memphis Marty Delia – The Jazz Music Blog), and received 4 stars in Downbeat Magazine. Bandleader Chelsea McBride's compositions are influenced by the lineage of Bob Brookmeyer, Maria Schneider and Darcy James Argue, and the Socialist Night School is a storytelling vehicle for McBride's evocative writing style.

Chelsea McBride's Socialist Night School completed their first 11-city cross-Canada tour in 2018, which took them to Vancouver Island and Halifax and many places in between. They released their first full- length album, The Twilight Fall on January 15, 2017 at Toronto's Lula Lounge, and their sophomore album Aftermath will be available everywhere on November 1, 2019

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
