About the River City Jazz Big Band
The River City Jazz Big Band, featuring Kathy Gibson, brings to life swinging sounds of the fabulous big bands from the 1940s. Rich in tradition, you will hear and want to dance to the many recognizable hits of the era.
The band was started in 1976 by Henry Swart, a veteran of the West Point Band that toured with such stars as Doris Day and Martha Raye during WWII. It is comprised of the area's top-notch musicians who, in part, serve their community through this great American musical heritage.
The River City Jazz Big Band has continued to be honored, performing for Presidents Bush, Ford and Reagan, the Governor's Inaugural Ball, the Ambassador to Italy, First Lady Betty Ford and recently opened in Chicago for Bob Newhart.
The Symphonic Winds ensemble is made up of 32 Cornerstone University students. This concert will feature both the full band as well as several chamber ensembles including the flute choir, brass choir, clarinet choir and a percussion ensemble. The program includes compositions by Francis McBeth, Warren Barker and Jack Stamp, a former Michigan resident.
The concert is free and open to the public.
