Chelsea McBride’s Socialist Night School is a Toronto-based 18-piece big band that pushes the jazz
tradition forward. Directed by multi-instrumentalist/composer Chelsea McBride, the band performs
entirely original compositions and arrangements (both by Chelsea and members of the band) that are
heavily influenced by socialism (of course), ECM-style jazz, pop music, and the mystery and majesty of
nature.
Chelsea McBride is a Toronto-based, Vancouver-born and raised multi-instrumentalist and composer
who has been playing and composing since she could talk and reach the piano keys. Her large ensemble
compositions & arrangements have been featured at the regional and national level, including with the
Toronto Jazz Orchestra, the Ottawa Youth Jazz Summit, the former Yamaha All Star Band at Musicfest
Canada and Vancouver’s Dal Richards Orchestra.
The Socialist Night School debuted in February 2012 and has played to full houses at both the former
Trane Studio and the Rex Hotel, and just released a five-song album on May 17, 2014 at the Rex.
