Suite Jubilation is an 11 movement sacred suite composed, orchestrated and conducted by Johnny Summers. It was written to feature the musicians of the Calgary Jazz Orchestra and the Vocalists of the New West Symphony Chorus and sets musical scenes that follows the Christian story from a first hand perspective.
