GOSHEN — The Legendary Count Basie Orchestra is going to get Goshen College swinging.
The iconic jazz orchestra and New York Voices will recreate the magic that earned them a prestigious Grammy Award. They will hit the stage at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 5, at Goshen College Music Center’s Sauder Concert Hall for the school's Performing Arts Series.
Despite Basie’s death 30 years ago, his music has lived on through the orchestra. The elite ensemble has won 18 Grammy Awards, including an honor in 1996 for its collaboration with New York Voices for “Live at Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild.” New York Voices, a vocal quartet, is rooted in jazz, Brazilian, R&B, classical and pop music.
Tickets are on sale for $28, $40 and $48 at goshen.edu/tickets or through the Goshen College Welcome Center at 574-535-7566 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
