WOODY HERMAN CONCERT A MAJOR SUCCESS
It was definitely a landmark concert, the Woody Herman Orchestra’s concert tribute to PAJA’s late cofounder Dr. Herb Wong, on January 25th at Menlo-Atherton High School’s Center For The Performing Arts. Nearly 400 were in attendance as the band, now led by longtime WHO stalwarts Frank Tiberi and Mike Brignola, played lots of the familiar Woody Herman charts. The concert was a huge success aesthetically—and we were able to do it financially, thanks to the many fans who made special contributions to help underwrite the significant costs entailed in hosting and presenting an orchestra of this size. PAJA now anticipates its next concert will be in early May—stay tuned!
We’re delighted to present here some of the beautiful images PAJA photographer Andy Nozaka captured at the concert. More can be found in this website’s Photo Gallery.
