The Kennedy Center Millennium Stage will present the Pilsner Jazz Band, in
collaboration with the City of Pilsen and the Embassy of the Czech
Republic, on Jan. 27, 2020, at 6 pm.

swing music to the people. With immense gratitude, the Pilsner Jazz Band
is ready to take the stage to mark the 75th anniversary of liberation and
cultural inspiration. The orchestra will feature a classic repertoire by
Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Glenn Miller as well as Czechoslovak
swing pieces.

List of performers:
Anna Moriová - vocals, alto saxophone
Jindřich Jindřich - trombone, band leader Jiří Kodajek - trumpet Jaroslav
Kanta - tenor saxophone Michal Lehký - piano Marek Levý - guitar Ivan
