The Arts Center of Kershaw County is proud to welcome back Dick Goodwin’s Big Band to the Wood Auditorium!
If you’ve ever seen a performance by the Big Band, you know it’s an experience. Dick Goodwin is a talent of incredible range, having worked in virtually every idiom from jingle to opera, jazz band to orchestra. That mastery is present in the Big Band’s performances, where the set list is meticulously tailored to suit the audience.
Dick Goodwin’s Big Band has been dazzling audiences with jazz performances for almost 50 years. The Big Band formed in 1973 when Goodwin was teaching at UT in Austin. The group followed him to Columbia later that same year, when he was hired to start a doctoral program at USC. Many of the original members are still performing with the group today, including its drummer.
When he’s not working with the Big Band, Goodwin serves as a Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the USC School of Music and has had a long association with the South Carolina Philharmonic composing, arranging, occasionally conducting and playing double bass and trumpet. Along with Dick Goodwin’s Big Band, he continues to lead the Dick Goodwin Quintet, which has toured across the world. Goodwin also produces film scores, commercials, and albums at GEM Recordings.
