Date night alert! The famed 16 piece Blue Wisp Big Band takes the Sorg Opera House stage, Saturday, October 21 at 7:30 p.m. Tenor saxophonist Brent Gallaher says, “We are thrilled to be performing at this beautiful venue”. The jazz ensemble will be playing the arrangements of Billy Byers, Thad Jones, Carroll Decamp and Al Kiger as well a few from current members. Avoid the ticket line by getting your $15.00 advance reserved seats at CincyTicket.com. Tickets will be $20.00 day of show.
SORG’s Ken Bowman says, “A tight big band on our stage should be a real treat. This is the perfect venue for a Blue Wisp Big Band concert.” Bowman added concert goers might want to have dinner in downtown Middletown before the show. “If you’ve not been in the heart of the city for a while you’ll be pleasantly surprised.” SORG volunteers are decorating the theater for “Hocus Pocus” the following Saturday so Halloween costumes will be encouraged for the jazz concert.
