Symphony musicians performing jazz is sweet music to polished trumpeter John D’earth’s ears. “Jazz is a revelatory art form waiting to be performed by symphony orchestras,” said D’earth (above), who directs the University of Virginia music department’s jazz performance program and teaches improvisation and jazz trumpet. Jazz will set the tone for D’earth’s latest creation, “Concerto for Quintet and Orchestra,” which features U.Va.’s faculty jazz quintet, Free Bridge Quintet, and the Charlottesville and University Symphony Orchestra, in concert on Saturday and Sunday in U.Va.’s Old Cabell Hall.
