The Aardvark Jazz Orchestra,  led by Mark Harvey of Arlington, celebrates its 48th season this fall, its first virtual season.

To begin, watch an archival video from Aardvark’s 2012 show at Scullers >>  Cantata Tubulidenta (Parts 1 and Part 2), Mark Harvey’s humorous suite, literally “The Song of  the Aardvarks.”   Many thanks to Tom Hall and ImprovLive 365 for the videos. 

Upcoming highlights of our 48th Season:

In October, we’ll share Harvey’s preelection music.

On Nov. 15, Bob Blumenthal will interview Harvey in a special Zoom event to celebrate Aardvark’s new CD, "Faces of Souls" on Leo Records.

In December, we’ll mark the band’s 48th annual Christmas Concert with favorite videos from our holiday archives.
