Come out and enjoy classic sounds from the Golden Era of big bands by the New Horizons Swing Band.
From Band Director Jeff Zentner:
“We’re a 22 piece big band swing band. We’ll be playing a variety of music from the 1930s through some contemporary Jazz music. It will be for dancing and listening. We’ll provide some commentary. The OLLI New Horizons program is designed for people in retirement, for the fun and thrill of it. Everyone in the band is over 50. Female vocalist who will be singing.
If you’re a Jazz aficionado the band will bring back memories of many great songs like:
One O’Clock Jump with Count Basie and his Orchestra
In the Mood with the Glenn Miller Orchestra
Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy with the Toronto All Star Big Band
Begin the Beguine with the Artie Shaw Orchestra
We have a good time and we bring a good crowd.”
