The Vancouver Suite

Jun 22 — 23, 2022

Grand Luxe Hall, Western Front / The Ironworks


8:00 – 9:00 p.m.


The Vancouver Suite was a concert-long composition for strings rehearsed, performed, and recorded by Darius Jones while in residence at Western Front. Expanding on work previously developed during a residency at Western Front in 2019, The Vancouver Suite is dedicated to Vancouver’s physical environment, its audiences, and most specifically, four of its string players: cellist Peggy Lee, bassist James Meger, and violinists Jesse Zubot and Josh Zubot. The public was invited to a series of open rehearsals to witness the musicians’ process as they prepared for a recording and performance of The Vancouver Suite alongside jazz drummer Gerald Cleaver at The Ironworks during the 2022 TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival. 

Video documentation of this event is available upon request.
