Jazz Spectrum:
Swing's the Thing Sign-up here

Sunday, September 13th | 2:00 p.m.

The Jazz Spectrum Vocal Quartet, backed by a fourpiece instrumental ensemble, pays tribute to popular groups from the 40's and 50's such as The Four Freshmen, The Crew Cuts, The Four Lads, and more current groups such as Manhattan Transfer. From lush ballads to swinging renditions of big band music; from goodtime 50's rock and doo wop to lightning fast vocalese lyrics, Jazz Spectrum lays down a dazzling performance of rich harmonies and light ensemble work.

 

 


Oktoberfest:
The Happy Wanderers Sign-up here

Sunday, October 18th | 2:00 p.m.

The Happy Wanderers duo of Jerry on accordion and vocals and Judy on trumpet will take you to the streets of Munich with their mix of German polkas, waltzes, schottishes and drinking songs. The Happy Wanderers have performed all over the Midwest at Oktoberfests, churches, libraries, country clubs and private homes for more than 18 years.

The Bel Sonore Chamber Ensemble, a group consisting of flute, oboe and bassoon, with soprano voice, will perform a diverse program ranging from the Italian Baroque to German Lieder to Duke Ellington.
