STOCKTON — Members of University of the Pacific’s 2012-13 Brubeck Institute Jazz Quintet will perform the world premiere of Chris Brubeck’s Adventure for Jazz Quintet and Orchestra with the Stockton Symphony when it begins its Classics season on Thursday, Oct. 11.

Classics I: Brubeck Mini-Festival begins at 8 p.m. at the Atherton Auditorium on the San Joaquin Delta College campus in Stockton, and repeats Saturday, Oct. 13, at 6 p.m.

Chris Brubeck performs his Prague Concerto for Bass Trombone with the Symphony, accompanied by a few members of the Quintet, and the program also includes a performance by the Symphony of Stravinsky’s Petrushka.

“Though written out in traditional musical notation,” says Brubeck of his Adventure, “the piece contains adventurous elements throughout. The most prominent instruments melodically will be the alto and tenor saxophones, but there will also be the traditional jazz rhythm section of upright bass, piano, and drums.” Paul Bloom, piano; Adam Goldman, bass; Thomas Kelley, alto saxophone; Rane Roatta, tenor saxophone; and Malachi Whitson, drums; “will all be encouraged to embellish, improvise, and stretch out.”

Purchase tickets online at or call the Symphony office at (209) 951-0196. Tickets begin at $22; tickets for children and students with an ID are half price.
