Williamsport city jazz orchestra to perform in Brandon Park
At 7 p.m. Sunday, the Williamsport City Jazz Orchestra will present a free summer concert in Brandon Park featuring exciting jazz arrangements of familiar tunes, jazz standards and selections from the American Song book. WCJO’s own dynamic vocalist, Suzie Cioffi, will be featured on several tunes including “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” and “Almost Like Being in Love.” Compositions by Thad Jones, Lyle Mays and Louie Prima will round out the program.
The Williamsport City Jazz Orchestra is made up of many of the area’s best jazz musicians. It was founded by current members Eddie Severn and William Ciabattari, both of whom are music professors, and both of whom have an extensive background in music performance of various genres.
