The Royal Conservatoire Big Band welcomes Michael Abene, one of the most important big band leaders of our time.
A pianist, composer and arranger, Michael Abene began his career as a pianist with Clark Terry and was still young when he joined the Big Band of Maynard Ferguson, for whom he wrote a number of arrangements.

He has written compositions and arrangements for stars like Chick Corea, Buddy Rich, Dizzy Gillespie and the Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra. From 2004 until 2014, he was also chief conductor of the famous WDR Big Band.
Michael Abene will spend a week rehearsing a specially selected programme of works with the Royal Conservatoire Big Band. John Ruocco, teacher of saxophone and the Big Band’s permanent conductor, will also appear as a guest soloist during the concert.
