It is so exciting to announce that Markus Rutz is the newly appointed Composer-in-Residence at The Rose Theatre Co. in Washington D.C.
—Leslie Kobylinski
Chicago-based trumpeter Markus Rutz was recently commissioned by The Rose Theatre, Co. to arrange and orchestrate “Rhapsody in Blue," by the great American Songbook composer, George Gershwin. His arrangement of the iconic melody will become the musical thread through The Rose's ‘21-’22 Season and the signature music for The Rose Rhapsody Podcast set to debut June 7th, 2021, dropping new episodes with new arrangements the first Monday of every month.

Together with his collaborator Adrian Joel Ruiz, Rutz has created modern visions and new vignettes of the melodic themes, to form a suite of new music with great deference and homage to Gershwin's iconic piece.

Please tune in to hear a mix of Markus Rutz’s new “Rhapsody in Blue" arrangements and eclectic entertainment from Creators at The Rose beginning June 7th. Episodes will be available on Soundcloud at The Rose Rhapsody, ITunes, Spotify or wherever you get you stream podcasts.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
