Reflections Jazz & Swing Orchestra was formed by its present leader, Paul Bastone, in the Spring of 1999. It is a traditional 18 piece big band with vocalist, based in Rockland County, that plays a wide variety of popular music including hits of the 30’s and 40’s. All of the members are volunteers and are rewarded by the good feeling they get from performing for diverse audiences and the knowledge that they are helping to preserve the Big Band sound.
Their dedication is further bolstered by the applause and verbal appreciation they receive from their audiences. The band has performed concerts sponsored by the Pearl River Public Library, Town of Haverstraw Summer Concert Series, the Nanuet Public Library, Suffern Recreation Dept., Helen Hayes Rehabilitation Hospital, Village of Greenwood Lake, Village of Montebello, Meals On Wheels, Sunrise Assisted Living, Congregation Shomrei Emunah, Tuxedo Performing Arts Group, Rockland Family Shelter, Friedwald House and Allendale Community For Mature Living.
This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by ArtsWestchester
