St. Paul, Minn. — Bill Schrickel is the Music Director of the Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra - hailed as "the very model of a major symphony orchestra, community style."

The MSO will perform an all jazz concert - heavy on Dave Brubeck - this Sunday at Central Lutheran Church in Minneapolis.

It's "heavy on Brubeck" as this year is Brubeck's 90th.

For the orchestra - and especially for Schrickel - this performance is a labor of love.

Schrickel's love for Brubeck's music and his admiration for Brubeck's strong sense of justice and humanity is palpable.
