All That Sassy, Divine Jazz from Chi Town Comes to Akron’s EJ Thomas Hall

Sat 3/17 @ 7:30PM

The Chicago Jazz Orchestra pays tribute to Sarah Vaughn with Chicago Jazz Orchestra conductor/artistic director Jeff Lindberg at Akron’s E. J. Thomas Hall.

Big band sounds with strings and accompanying vocalists honor Vaughn, best known for “Send in the Clowns,” “Misty,” “Key Largo,” and “Until I Met You.” Nicknamed “Sassy” and “The Divine One,” Vaughn was a four-time Grammy winner who also earned Lifetime Achievement and NEA Jazz Masters awards.

Admission ranges from $25 to $45, but is free for students.
