NORWICH – The Chenango County Council of the Arts in Norwich announces its ninth subscription performance series lineup as well as a new chamber music series.
The season will begin on Saturday, Sept. 27 at 7:30 p.m. with a free performance by the United States Military Academy Band’s Jazz Knights.
For over 30 years the Jazz Knights have brought musical excellence and variety to their audiences by presenting the best of big band jazz and popular music. Members of the group are graduates of America’s finest music schools. They are recruited and selected through a competitive audition process specifically for service in the United States Military Academy Band at West Point. Members of the band have played with such jazz icons as Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Woody Herman, Maynard Ferguson, Ahmad Jamal and the Glenn Miller Band.
On Oct. 18 at 7 p.m., Altar Boyz rolls into town. Altar Boyz is a musical comedy spoof about a fictitious Christian boy-band on the last night of their national “Raise the Praise” tour. With their sweet harmonies, sinfully spectacular dancing and an unnerving sense of fashion, Altar Boyz are destined to rock the masses! A musical for the entire family, Altar Boyz is 90 minutes of pure fun and the winner of the 2005 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical. The performance is sponsored by NBT Bank.
